Effects of high-speed power training on muscle strength and power in patients with multiple sclerosis

Carlos Medina-Perez, PhD, et al.

This study describes the effects of a high-speed power training program of knee extensors on muscular strength and muscle power in patients with multiple sclerosis (MS) without injuries. The researchers wanted to find out if this novel training methodology could be used in MS patients. The results showed that patients who performed the training increased their muscle strength and power. Moreover, no adverse effects attributable to this training regime were noted. Hence, the findings indicate that this training regime could be use by Veterans with MS, and it might contribute to maintaining or improving functional everyday tasks encountered in those patients.
