NCHPAD Research Corner: Resistance Training Improves Gait Kinematics in Persons with Multiple Sclerosis
Gutierrez, G. M., Chow, J. W., Tillman, M. D., McCoy, S. C., Castellano, V., & White, L. J. (2005). Resistance training improves gait kinematics in persons with multiple sclerosis. Arch Phys Med Rehabil., 86, 1824-1829.
The study served to assess the effects of an 8-week resistance training program on walking ability in individuals with multiple sclerosis (MS). The authors hypothesized that following the 8-week training program, gait characteristics in persons with MS would become significantly more consistent with normal gait patterns than those that are viewed with people who are unimpaired.
