Lower-limb performance disparities: Implications for exercise prescription in multiple sclerosis

Rebecca D. Larson, PhD, et al.

This study showed that each leg can function differently at a submaximal level in people with mild multiple sclerosis. Currently, there is only limited information on how leg differences affect function and exercise prescription. This study strongly suggests that limb differences can affect overall aerobic function and subsequently affect physical activity and exercise recommendations.
