An early symptom of multiple sclerosis is unilateral weakness, particularly in the lower limbs, which is associated with strength asymmetries. The purpose of this exploratory study was to examine strength asymmetries at the hip, knee, and ankle joints, and to investigate the associations between lower limb strength asymmetries and self-reported fatigue severity and disability in people with multiple sclerosis.
