Under & Over Rehabilitation Trial

Under & over rehabilitation trial

Rehabilitation sewing trial

This is an opportunity to check out if a daily 30 minute sewing exercise program can help with rehabilitation of arms, fingers and hands. This sounds absolutely ideal for me. Its called the Under & Over Rehabilitation trial.

How might it help

I am losing the use of the fingers in my left hand and I am left handed. Regular exercise should help to restore the use of my fingers. Perhaps I can start to write or twirl spaghetti round a fork again. I am very conscious of this disability.

Regular exercises

Use it or lose it – how many times has someone said that to you? MS makes it more difficult for a message to pass from the brain and along the spinal cord. The result is that a muscle does not receive a proper message Regular exercise will improve the quality of the message that is received by the relevant muscle.

Neural plasticity

Regular exercise is an example of neural plasticity.  The human brain is able to adapt to change. It can master new skills, store memories and information and even accommodate to the damage caused by multiple sclerosis.
