Exercise with neurological conditions

"Listen to your body and learn how it reacts to changes in your routine and lifestyle"
"it is best to learn relaxation and energy conservation to avoid flare-ups." Keep a record of the exercises you do and how your body responds to them."
"The society recommends yoga and tai chi as two forms of physical activity that focus on stretching, breathing, and relaxation.

"If you have access to a swimming pool through your community, YMCA, or health club, consider water-based exercises, such as water aerobics classes. Water removes the pressure of gravity and supports your body while providing a little bit of strengthening resistance. Immersion in water can also be very good for the circulatory system.

"And remember: The most important step of all is the very first one. Just get started, and you can modify your routine from there."
