Keep your muscles moving
- General exercises - a range of motion and stretching exercises can help combat the inevitable inward movement of the limbs as muscles and tendons shorten. Limbs tend to become fixed in position, and these types of activities can help keep them mobile for longer. Standard low-impact aerobic exercises such as walking and swimming can also help slow the disease's progression.
- Breathing assistance - as the muscles used for breathing become weaker, it may be necessary to use devices to help improve oxygen delivery through the night. In the most severe cases, a patient may need to use a ventilator to breathe on their behalf.
- Mobility aids - canes, wheelchairs, and walkers.
- Braces - these keep muscles and tendons stretched and help slow their shortening. They also give added support to the user when moving.
