Webinar: Cardiovascular Conditioning in Multiple Sclerosis - Breaking the Barriers
- May 21, 2019
- 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm
Join us for a FREE webinar series for medical professionals treating clients with multiple sclerosis. Learn about the latest advancements in rehabilitation for multiple sclerosis to maximize your client’s functional potential and quality of life, regardless of disability status.
This session will focus on considerations for the development of an effective cardiovascular training program for people diagnosed with multiple sclerosis. Research will be presented exploring positive cardiovascular training responses in this population, including potential neuro-plastic effects. Common barriers to achieving cardiovascular exercise in people with multiple sclerosis will be explored, including the prevalence of fatigue, autonomic dysfunction and respiratory challenges. A protocol for assessing cardiovascular function and identifying physiological barriers will be presented, along with discussion regarding how to accommodate identified barriers and create an optimal training environment.
