If so, you may be suitable to take part in a new free 10-week physiotherapy-led exercise and education intervention 

MS researchers at the University of Limerick, in collaboration with colleagues in the US, MS Ireland and the Health Research Board have developed a new exercise programme that aims to improve strength and walking ability among people with MS. 

Who can participate?

People with a diagnosis of MS, who are able to walk independently without a mobility aid, are over 18 years, and are currently not physically active, are invited to take part.

What do I have to do?

The study will involve an initial physiotherapy assessment followed by a 10-week group exercise and education programme (in a community setting in Galway, Limerick or Cork), wherein participants will be asked to attend six 1.5 hour exercise sessions and 3 follow-up assessments after programme completion. This study starts in September 2014.
