Dr. Alexander Ng received his BS in Biological Sciences from the University of California- Davis (1977) and his MS (1985) and PhD (1990) degrees in Exercise Physiology from the Biodynamics Laboratory at the University of Wisconsin-Madison. An interest in muscle fatigue led him to additional post-doctoral work examining mechanisms of fatigue in persons with Multiple Sclerosis and other chronic diseases at the University of California- San Francisco. Since 2000, Dr Ng has been teaching at Marquette University where he is currently an associate professor in the Exercise Science Program in the College of Health Sciences. He is also an adjunct associate professor at the Medical College of Wisconsin (MCW) through the Clinical Translational Science Institute and is a member of the MCW Cancer Center.
Alex has been part of the “Can Do MS” educational team for the past approx. 17 years and is active in the Wisconsin Chapter of the NMSS.
Everyone knows that exercise is good for you, but how are you going to exercise if you have MS? After all, dealing with fatigue, imbalance, heat intolerance and mobility issues can make exercise seem daunting. Truth be told, physical activity can be for everyone.
Please join physical therapist Tammy Roehrs and exercise physiologist Alex Ng in this webinar to learn how to start exercising, what to do and/or how to improve your exercise regimen. Tammy and Alex will provide compelling reasons on why it is so important to become or remain active. They will also share practical tips and advice on how to become or stay fit regardless of the challenges you face with MS, or your current fitness level.
