No association of leg strength asymmetry with walking performance, fatigability or fatigue in multiple sclerosis
Background: One of the first signs of Multiple Sclerosis (MS) is weakness on one side of the body, which is associated with an increased reliance on the stronger leg during walking as indicated by asymmetric muscle activity. The role of leg strength asymmetry on walking performance, fatigue and fatigability is unknown in people with MS (PwMS). Objective: The purpose of this cross-sectional study was to determine whether leg strength asymmetry is associated with walking performance, objective measures of fatigability, or subjective perceptions of fatigue during a 6-minute walk test (6MWT). Methods: ...
