A physio at the MS Research day (last Monday) had done lots of work on why people with MS fall. She said that people with MS should do 15 minutes of balance exercises a day. I’m a sucker for a regime so I started this on Monday. My exercise is standing in a corner, not touching the walls (unless I fall). On Monday I managed a couple of minutes. On Tuesday, I did five, on Wednesday, I did ten and since then I’ve been doing fifteen. I have always had to touch the walls a few times while I’m doing it. And I am standing with my feet around an inch apart - I’m working towards standing with them together.
I haven’t fallen since I’ve started doing this. I’d strongly recommend it to anyone who falls. You can do more challenging balance exercises if you find standing with feet together easy - try standing heel of one foot touching the toes of the other. But maybe if you can do that, you would never fall anyway.
