Physiotherapy and Exercise


Physiotherapy and exercise 


There are many research studies which have reported the benefits of exercise for people at all stages of MS. Many people with MS have found improvements in symptoms, including physical and mental health when they exercise. People also tell us that joining an exercise class is a great social link and an opportunity to learn from someone in a similar situation.

Programme Overview

MS Ireland runs a number of online group exercise classes. Here physiotherapists and people with MS talk about the benefits of exercising and our programmes.

Physiotherapy Business Case

MS Ireland is delighted to launch our business case for sustainable funding for a national physiotherapy programme for people living with MS and other neurological conditions. We propose to provide a sustainable, national physiotherapy service provided by a team of specialist physiotherapists directly employed by MS Ireland, delivered at a regional level using a blend of ‘online’ and ‘in-person’ programmes. Our programmes have research and clinical audit evidence for their effectiveness for reducing symptom severity, improving quality of life and reducing health service utilisation.
