Yoga can help Multiple Sclerosis

Yoga can help Multiple Sclerosis

Multiple sclerosis is an incurable neurodegenerative and chronic inflammatory disease which occurs due to the demyelination of the nerve cells and affects the central nervous system.

What has Yoga been shown to improve?

Various studies have shown that pain, depression and fatigue affect physical activities in Multiple Sclerosis patients.

Quality of life is affected due to patients having impairments in mobility, trouble walking, depression, anxiety and chronic pain.

Many reviews and meta-analysis in research suggest positive impact of yoga on patients with Multiple Sclerosis.

Yoga have been shown to reduce depression level, pain, fatigue, neurogenic bladder dysfunction and improvement in quality of life and strength.

Specific interventions have also been shown to improve visual reaction time and auditory reaction time.
