Overcoming the Obstacles of Multiple Sclerosis with a Liberty Trike

It is particularly difficult for people with multiple sclerosis (MS) to stay fit and keep their muscles flexible and healthy. MS causes muscle weakness, balance problems, a lack of energy and a reduced function of the musculoskeletal system. This translates to difficulties with walking and cycling.

The Liberty Trike has helped many dealing with a wide range of physical challenges—including SMA, DMD, and other debilitating diseases—the freedom to finally get out and move once again!

The Liberty Trike can offer people with MS (depending on severity, of course) the option to bike and train their muscles in a comfortable way. Dulci Hill, a Liberty Triker facing MS, created a motivating video that gave her viewers insight on how her trike has given her the freedom to move, ways it has benefited her while working through MS and highlights how the different speed levels work for her—among other insight and tips. 

She's an inspiration, check it out:

According to Liberty Trikers facing some kind of poor mobility due to a disease or injury, getting on their LT several times a week has been life-changing—physically, mentally, emotionally—the whole nine yards.

    Research performed at the University of Utah suggests that patients diagnosed with Multiple Sclerosis, also experience various benefits by engaging in physical activity. When discussing with health care providers or physical therapists possible options for starting an exercise program, MS patients may consider cycling. According to this Multiple Sclerosis Support article, cycling provided numerous benefits to those afflicted with MS. Think muscle gain, less fatigue, a better mood, improved balance and coordination—the list goes on! 

    Here are a few comments and posts from our Official Liberty Trike Facebook  group, that's facing MS as well:

    Second ride on my new teal trike! Drove on the sidewalk and then the road, up to level 3. Helmet should arrive today, mirrors next week. Once I am comfortable I will add a pet trailer so Miss Mattie can join along. My husband has been riding an e-bike for over a year and I wanted to go along sometimes, now I can! I have MS so balance and stamina are issues for me. This trike really works for me, I feel a sense of freedom! Many adventures await!!

    Laura now enjoys riding with her husband on bike rides, because Laura thought she couldn't ride a bike with MS. 

    My husband’s Birthday gift to me, so I can accompany him on his walks at the beach that I have been missing out on for the last eight years because of walking issues due to MS.
    I am now out moving and seeing life’s beauty and why I named her, “Magic” because it’s so easy, fun and freeing!
    “The Freedom to Move” is right and that is Magic!
