ABSTRACT
Balance in standing and gait are the main primarily affected functions in the early stages of multiple sclerosis. Physical therapy can play a major role in reeducation of these affections, being along with the medical treatment a sine qua non condition of a better life for these patients. We also consider that one of the most important parts of the physical therapy program is the exercises dosage, taking into consideration that fatigue can be a major negative factor of rehabilitation in MS persons.
