OBJECTIVE To determine the effectiveness of PRT for people with MS, focusing on improving the gait deficits common in this population. METHODS Using a single blind randomized controlled trial, people with relapsing-remitting MS were randomly allocated to either a PRT program targeting the lower limb muscles twice a week for 10 weeks (n = 36), or usual… CONTINUE READING
