How MS Affects Bone Health, and What You Can Do About It

“Trevis, hips don’t like to be sitting. In fact, none of your bones do.”

This is what my physiotherapist told me in a recent session to help me recover from a series of falls. We were speaking of rehabilitation strategies that would best suit my recovery while also fitting within the limitations that multiple sclerosis (MS) has placed on my life.

We decided on (all right, she prescribed) a course of exercises in the pool (a local hotel has a pool with nonresident access, so that’s sorted). The mild resistance of the water and the use of the body’s natural buoyancy to reduce stress on the joints should be just the ticket to gently strengthen the areas of concern.

That is to be an ongoing process for a good few weeks. But what stuck was her comment about bone health.
