Options in Improving Respiratory Function in Multiple Sclerosis

I enjoyed reading the excellent study by Ray et al assessing the impact of a respiratory training program in multiple sclerosis in the October issue of the Archives.

There is a sufficient amount of research to demonstrate that these techniques can improve respiratory endurance and produce functional benefits for daily life activities, whether these are sports-specific demands or normal life requirements.
