    Documents: Stretching for People with MS

    This booklet focuses on the basics to move and gently stretch muscles and other soft tissues, such as tendons, on your own, at your own pace. For the purposes of this book, the familiar term “stretching” is used, though most of these exercises are, technically, range of motion activities and followed by exercises combining the motions that can be done sitting or on your bed for flexibility.
