Physio

Hi all

Saw specialist today - I have to be honest and say he wasn't a lot of help but he has referred me for physio to build up my core strength.  Can someone tell me what this means and what is likely to happen?

Thanks

Hi there,

It's likely to consist of Pilates-like exercises.

There should be some kind of assessment, to work out what you're having problems with, and then some customised exercises to focus on those things.

"Core strength" is just the muscles of your trunk - the ones that help keep you upright and steady.  They're weak in a lot of people with MS.
