Multiple Sclerosis (MS)
What is Multiple Sclerosis?
Multiple Sclerosis (MS) is a nervous system disease, which injures the myelin sheath, the material that surrounds and protects your nerve cells. This affects your brain and spinal cord and can create damage that stops or slows down messages between your brain and the rest of your body. The symptoms can include visual impairment, muscle fatigue, imbalance, and cognitive decline.
How Can Physical Therapy Assist Patients with Multiple Sclerosis?
If you've been diagnosed with MS recently, physical therapy can help you regain and maintain strength, flexibility, and general fitness. Physical therapy for MS will begin with a comprehensive assessment of your health history and current condition. The physical therapist will create a custom-made program to assist you with managing your symptoms. Typical treatment will include strength training and exercise programs.
