    The consensus now is that exercise helps maintain us well as you possibly can. The old advice about not exercising is now way out of date. There have been exercise trials and the rate of progression decline has shown to be reduced
    Thank you for that and for introducing me to the term "collateral sprouting"!

    Do you have any references to the exercise trials that reduce the rate of progression?
