A new study suggests a positive association between fitness level and cognitive functioning in people with multiple sclerosis. This adds to a growing body of evidence that appropriate exercise offers wide-reaching benefits for MS patients. Lead author Ruchika Shaurya Prakash, PhD, assistant professor of psychology, Ohio State University, Columbus , and colleagues conducted the study, published last year in Brain Research, to examine if fitness was associated with better cognitive functioning in individuals with MS. Many of the treatments that are available for MS are disease-modifying drugs, she says, and few of those have been tested for their efficacy in reducing cognitive deficits among MS patients.
