Stuifbergen, A.K., & Becker, H. (2001). Health promotion practices in women with multiple sclerosis. Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation Clinics of North America, 12, 9-22.Purpose
This study explored the self-reported health promotion behaviors (including physical activity patterns) of women with multiple sclerosis (MS). The participants were divided into two groups: those with relapsing-remitting MS and those with chronic progressive MS. The authors were interested in how health promotion behaviors in these groups change over time and how these practices influence the increasing impairment found in this progressive disease.
