Abstract

Motor imagery (MI) is a promising rehabilitation technique that has received significant interest for use in persons with multiple sclerosis (MS). Through alterations in neural networks, MI has the potential to improve measures of walking speed, walking distance, and fatigue in people with MS. Further research is required to assess the validity of MI in conjunction with other therapeutic MS treatments and provide objective outcome measures of motor improvements.
