The Institute of Myology gives guidelines for physical activity in neuromuscular diseases

In a contribution to Médicosport-santé© published on the website, researchers and clinicians from the Institute of Myology report on what is known about physical activity in neuromuscular diseases:

  • they have analysed the literature over the last 30 years and give recommendations for training by disease group (muscular dystrophies, idiopathic inflammatory myopathies, metabolic myopathies, mitochondrial myopathies and myasthenias);
  • they confirm that, when properly adapted, physical activity is safe and has potential positive effects on the progression of the disease, even if the disorders are severe, and on the mental health of patients.
