Getting Back to Your Pre-Infusion Routine none By the LEMTRADA Team • May 2, 2017

NA

Your infusions are over and you’re feeling so ready to dive back into your pre-infusion routine, but that may take some time. Be patient with yourself!

Everyone reacts differently to treatment, and you know your body better than anyone else, so be smart, be good to yourself, and work toward your exercise goals at your own pace. There’s no rush!

Here’s the deal: Exercise can have a lot of benefits—whether you have relapsing MS or not. But when it comes to relapsing MS, it’s suggested that exercise may have anti-inflammatory effects on the body. It’s also possible that exercise can have a positive impact on some relapsing MS symptoms like fatigue, movement, memory loss, and balance.

And there’s something for everyone! Exercises that have been shown to benefit people with relapsing MS can be done in the water or on land. You can try aerobics or water aerobics. Maybe you’re interested in swimming or resistance training. You can also be adventurous and switch it up if you like variety!

Here are some tips you can try when it comes to exercising with relapsing MS:

Set realistic goals. Fitness results don’t happen overnight, so don’t push yourself too hard. And take breaks or simplify your exercises if you feel like you need to.

Work with what you have. There are many ways to be active and fit without joining a gym, like gardening, doing chores, or simply taking a walk.

Find a buddy. Exercise with a friend, and if you’re looking to work with a fitness instructor, try to find one with experience training people with relapsing MS.

Keep cool and hydrated. Always be mindful of the temperature. Fans, cooling vests or scarves, and simply cold water can help you manage the heat.

Exercise can be a truly rewarding experience, so find one that you like—and stick with it!

One of our bloggers, Katy, has found that practicing yoga helps her stay balanced—both physically and mentally. And Kimberly likes to run and do Pilates to keep her positivity alive.

Remember to always keep your healthcare provider in the loop when you’re starting a new exercise routine or getting back into your old one. He or she can figure out if the exercises you’re thinking about are right for you—and maybe even suggest some exercises you didn’t think of before!
