Aquatic exercise provides a comfortable option for people with multiple sclerosis (MS) due to its supportive, reduced-impact environment. In partnership with the Aquatic Exercise Association and Sanofi Genzyme, MSAA has produced a 45-minute instructional video to introduce the basics of aquatic exercise for individuals with MS.
Introduction to MS Aquatic Fitness demonstrates a wide variety of shallow-water exercises designed specifically for the MS community, addressing areas of balance, strength, range of motion, mobility, and aerobic endurance. To make the instruction as inclusive as possible, the aquatic trainer begins each new exercise with low-impact movements and incorporates variations to the activity to allow for higher levels of intensity.
