Exercise Physiology

Regular physical activity and exercise are very important when living with a neurological condition, especially in the early stages of progression. Participation restrictions often exist for people living with a progressive neurological condition and research shows 80% of people living with MS are not achieving the recommended activity guidelines. With the help of our Exercise Physiologists, you will be supported to safely participate in an increased level of physical activity and exercise.
