Promotion of Exercise in Multiple Sclerosis Through Health Care Providers

Academic Article

Abstract

  • © 2018 Lippincott Williams & Wilkins. Participation in exercise yields meaningful benefits among persons with multiple sclerosis (MS), yet this population engages in low rates of health-promoting physical activity. The disconnect between evidence of benefits and rates of participation requires consideration of new opportunities for changing this health behavior. The current article hypothesizes that the patient-provider interaction offers a fertile opportunity for promoting exercise behavior in MS.
