Study: treadmill training for MS patients
Today, there's a passle of new abstracts to peruse from the journal Multiple Sclerosis. Lots of stuff about depression, cognition, and pain, and a report from a small study investigating the impact of treadmill training on walking effort and fatigue. Bottom line: for the study's 16 participants, 12 sessions of up to 30 minutes on the treadmill improved comfortable walking speed and endurance. We just got our basement tidied up; maybe there ought to be a treadmill down there. They're expensive little buggers, but maybe a used treadmill?
