Improving Gait in Multiple Sclerosis (MS) - Strength Training or Treadmill Walking?
Strength Training or Treadmill Walking? A Randomized Control Study on the Effect on Gait in Multiple Sclerosis

The objective of this study is to evaluate the effect of strength training for the lower extremities and treadmill training on walking ability in persons with Multiple Sclerosis. The study is a randomized control trial with two groups and the intervention is 8 weeks of intensive strength training or treadmill walking. Primary outcome measure is walking ability, secondary outcome measures are balance, work economy and strength.
