Living with Multiple Sclerosis

Living with Multiple Sclerosis

Multiple Sclerosis is a chronic neurological disorder that affects the central nervous system, which is your brain and spinal cord.  The disorder disrupts the transfer of messages that communicates a desired action from the brain to the spinal cord and parts of the body.  The lack of messages being passed through the body causes issues with vision, coordination and sensation in the limbs.

Nordic Walking can help individuals walk more comfortably, stable and make each step more effective.   Exercise is a vital part of a healthy lifestyle both mentally and physically.  Utilizing Nordic Walking poles encourages individuals to venture outdoors with the confidence of the support from the poles.  The simplicity of going on vacation, taking a museum tour or walking around the block is monuments in the life of MS.  Incorporating Nordic Walking Poles into every day life can drastically welcome new experiences, sights and feelings that can finally be shared. 

Meet Lori, a strong woman that shares her daily journey with MS on YouTube.  Before Lori had received treatment for MS, she needed and relied on Nordic Walking poles to allow her to walk without falling down.  After her procedure Lori was able to walk easier and only needed the Nordic Walking Poles for speed and security.  To experience Lori’s story visit www.youtube.com/watch?v=gZAXBXt2sDY.  Full channel link: https://www.youtube.com/channel/UC0FycAH5Ls0pcCImiECHhdw
