Multiple Sclerosis and Asymmetry

Comments (24)

If you talk with someone who lives with MS about their symptoms, you’ll hear them say, “My MS is ______ sided.” MS symptoms are often more predominant on one side than the other. My MS is right-sided, so as a result the left side compensates. For me, right-sided leg spasms lead to left-sided hip pain. Asymmetrical Uttanasana is one of my favorite yoga poses for MS.  The asymmetry provides for a very deep stretch in the glutes and hamstrings that in my case pacifies the spasms in my quadriceps. This pose also illustrates the vast difference of flexibility between one side and the other, giving me guidance on where to go next in my practice. See the pose below, or in the Quick Fix for Hips video.
