While physical activity is recommended to reduce symptomology associated with multiple sclerosis (MS) little has been done to explore the potential usefulness of theoretical models of exercise behavior change in individuals with MS. Based on the success of the transtheoretical model of exercise behavior change (TTM) in the general population and early promising results in those with MS, the TTM was tested in a sample of women with MS over a 1-year period, to examine its usefulness and the effect of TTM constructs on MS-related symptoms.
