Healthcare provider beliefs about exercise and fatigue in people with multiple sclerosis

Catherine M. Smith, PhD, et al.

Fatigue is an extreme sense of tiredness that people with multiple sclerosis often feel. Healthcare providers such as doctors, physiotherapists/physical therapists, and occupational therapists do not fully understand what causes fatigue but they do know that regular exercise is good for everybody, including people with multiple sclerosis. This research will help people with multiple sclerosis talk to their healthcare providers more confidently about what form of exercise might be best for them. It will help guide healthcare providers to give exercise programs or advice that is suitable, enjoyable, and sustainable for each person with multiple sclerosis.
