Abstract

Introduction: Multiple sclerosis is the most common progressive neurologic disorder among young adults. This diseaseleads to lesions regarded to as demylinating plaques which are scattered in the white matter of CNS hence create variousneurological problems. The purpose of this study was to assess the effect of one period of selective exercise training onmotor function of multiple sclerosis patients.Materials and Methods: The present at1392 year and quasi-experimental study used a pretest-posttest design. Thesubjects with the age of 27-42, expanded disability status scale 1-4 and were purposefully and voluntarily selected andrandomly allocated to the experimental(n=8) and control(n=8) groups .exercise training for groups was carried out in 4weeks, 3sessions per week. In the pre and post timed up and go tests were used to record motor functions. The collecteddata were then analyzed through Mixed ANOVA at a significance level of P ≤ 0/05.Results: The results showed that Significant improvements observed in postural sway characteristics of the experimentalgroup .also significant differences observed between post test scores in the experimental and control groups.Conclusion: The exercise training employed in this study resulted in considerable improvements in static balance in multiple sclerosis.
