Muscle Atrophy

I had a relapse about two years ago and I have been in a wheelchair since.
My aim is to get walking again and my physio says that I have little nerve damage in my legs
I think that my inability to walk may be mostly due to muscle atrophy, as I was housebound during my relapse and hardly moved.
Does anyone have experience of this and can anyone suggest excercises to help me on my way?

MS has no effect on muscles at all. It is the signals to the muscles that get scrambled. Follow whatever your physiotherapist suggests. They are qualified to get you moving safely. Best wishes Anthony
