How Does Strength Training and Balance Training Affect Gait Function and Fatigue in Patients With Multiple Sclerosis?

2016-08-19 11:25:24 | BioPortfolio

Summary

Introduction: Multiple Sclerosis (MS) is characterized by decreased strength and motor control, and compromised gait function. Reduced walking speed, balance and fatigue are the cardinal symptoms. In rehabilitation strength and balance training is commonly used. There is increasing scientific support of strength training for improving walking function. The evidence for balance training is yet flawed. It is known that neurologic damage in MS leads to increased cognitive processing in the planning of movements, which predisposes fatigue. Since fatigue is also associated with impaired balance, it can be hypothesized that motoric/balance training with an emphasis on cognitive load can affect gait and fatigue.

Purpose: The aim of the study is to determine whether there is a differentiated effect between strength and balance training measured by motor function, strength, balance and fatigue.

Financial support for training including both student stipends and loans and training grants to institutions.

A form of multiple sclerosis characterized by a progressive deterioration in neurologic function which is in contrast to the more typical relapsing remitting form. If the clinical course is free of distinct remissions, it is referred to as primary progressive multiple sclerosis. When the progressive decline is punctuated by acute exacerbations, it is referred to as progressive relapsing multiple sclerosis. The term secondary progressive multiple sclerosis is used when relapsing remitting multiple sclerosis evolves into the chronic progressive form. (From Ann Neurol 1994;36 Suppl:S73-S79; Adams et al., Principles of Neurology, 6th ed, pp903-914)
