Posted by pae on May 24th, 2013

The seventh presentation in the 2013 LINKS Teleconference Series took place on May 14. A common effect of MS is impaired mobility, including difficulty walking. Because of mobility problems and other symptoms, those with MS are at significant risk for falls and the resulting, potentially life-changing consequences of fall-related injuries. This teleconference was designed for people living with MS who are ambulatory but who may be at risk for falling. Learn about fall risks, tips and strategies to reduce the risk for falling, and exercises directed at improving postural alignment, balance, endurance.
