Active Lifestyle

Active Lifestyle Helps

Although there’s no cure for primary lateral sclerosis, you can make a few lifestyle choices to preserve muscle function for as long as possible:

  • Stay active. Continue activity or exercise programs as long as you can comfortably and safely do so.
  • Staying active may help you keep your existing function and slow the progression of the disease.
  • Be sure you stay safe, keeping in mind that your muscle weakness puts you at higher risk of tripping and falling.
  • Eat a healthy diet. Because PLS can cause your activity level to slow down, be sure you’re eating a nutritious diet to avoid excessive weight gain and added pressure on your joints.
