Effects of Aquatic Therapy in Multiple Sclerosis Patients
Examining the potential physical and psychosocial benefits of Ai Chi for patients diagnosed with MS
Truman Cowles, BSN, RN and Jong-Mi Lee, MSN, NP conducted a study on the effects of aquatic therapy in Multiple Sclerosis patients. Patients diagnosed with multiple sclerosis (MS) often seek complementary and alternative medicine (CAM) to assist with symptom management and to improve quality of life. Research on the use of Ai Chi, a form of aquatic CAM involving continuous movement of the arms, legs, and trunk combined with deep breathing, is limited in the MS patient population.
