  • Perceived effectiveness for gait training: Moderate
  • Perceived effectiveness for Ataxia (lack of coordination): None
  • Side Effects: Mild
  • Adherence: Usually
  • Burden: A little
Dosage: 10 min Daily
Advice & Tips: At first (months ago) I tried using the treadmill as commonly advised (i.e., gradually increasing time and slope for aerobic exercise). I soon learned that approach left me exhausted. After consulting with fellow MSers at my monthly support group, I changed my treadmill routine to two 5-minute walks per day. The new schedule is working much better primarily because it's sustainable. It maintains my limberness and gait quality, but doesn't help much with weight loss. When I don't treadmill, my legs hurt more, and my gait quality (including drop foot) deteriorates. I typically use my walker every time I go out (for safety and fatigue management) so the treadmill supplies my only serious gait practice.
Side effects: Paresthesia
