Elliptical exercise improves fatigue ratings and quality of life in patients with multiple sclerosis

Jessie M. Huisinga, PhD, et al.

The Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) is committed to serving the healthcare needs of approximately 28,000 veterans with multiple sclerosis (MS). To provide the best possible therapies to veterans with MS, the VA has the opportunity to help evaluate new rehabilitation options for MS patients. The physical activity intervention, elliptical exercise, presented in this article allows for a new and effective treatment option for MS patients in improving reported fatigue symptoms and quality of life reports. Importantly, the physical activity evaluated in this study may be employed in a variety of settings since elliptical trainers are widely available.
