Exercises you can do at home

We have created and curated a series of videos and worksheets of exercises that are suitable for people with MS, Parkinson’s and stroke survivors to do at home. In fact anyone can try them so why not get your family involved too.

Therabands / Resistance Bands

Therabands are a great way to increase your strength by increasing resistance during small movements.  Great for both upper and lower body strength they come in different strengths. Yellow = very light, Red = light and Green = medium.  If you don’t have any an old pair of tights will do!
