,MS research update – 18 April 2016
Motor imagery (MI) is a technique where somebody thinks about moving their body in a certain way without actually moving. This technique is commonly used by athletes to rehearse movements and skills to improve their performance.
This study investigated the use of MI in people with MS, by combining it with music with a strong beat or a metronome to see if walking could be improved just through these mental practice sessions. Participants in the test groups received MI training session CDs and were instructed to practice for 17 minutes a day, six days a week for four weeks.
When compared to participants in the control group those in the groups who had performed MI to a beat (music or metronome) could walk significantly faster and further, as well as having improved fatigue and quality of life.
The study demonstrates that using mental imagery and practice to a beat could be a safe and effective way of managing and improving walking difficulties in people with MS.
Worth a months. try
And try we must, to help each other to to help ourselves as well, right? ✨🧜♀️💖☮️✨
