Exercise is an integral part of multiple sclerosis (MS) rehabilitation. The health benefits of regular exercise and being active for patients with MS is well known. As every MS patient benefits from exercise, regardless of age, sex, or physical ability, almost every MS patient is recommended to exercise regularly, and every physiatrist or physiotherapist recommends that their MS patients do regular activities. However, more than half of MS patients don't exercise or decrease their regular exercise during middle age. An experienced, reliable, and dedicated development team is required to assess the barriers of this population to regularly exercise better. Each team member should give their maximum effort to identify both the obstacles and enablers that influence adherence to a regular exercise schedule.
