Enhanced Strength Training
This Enhanced Strength Training Program provides ACT for MS clients with professional physical training and exercise in a controlled environment. The goal of the program is to maintain or improve the strength, balance and flexibility of each enrolled client.
ACT for MS will provide training sessions with a personal trainer up to twice per week at one of the designated local facilities. In-home sessions may be arranged for those with mobility restrictions that would prevent them from attending at a facility.
Active client members of ACT for MS are eligible to participate in this program, upon completion and approval of the Client Application and Physical Therapy Evaluation. In addition, the client requires written permission from their neurologist, and have completed waiver of liability. Upon initial enrollment and acceptance to this program, the client receives once weekly training sessions for three months. The number of sessions will then be increased to twice weekly if the trainer and the client agree to a schedule. The twice weekly sessions will continue as long as the client remains active.
