Multiple Sclerosis Therapy

Multiple Sclerosis Rehabilitation Approach

Multiple Sclerosis, or MS, is a chronic condition that affects the central nervous system (CNS): the brain, spinal cord and optic nerves. The damage caused by multiple sclerosis creates scars, called lesions, that can be seen on the brain, spinal cord and optic nerve. Because the process of developing these lesions is called sclerosis, multiple sclerosis literally means “many scars.” These scars lead to a variety of neurological problems.

Rehabilitation approaches consists of:

  • Balance Training
  • Vestibular Rehabilitation
  • Strengthening
  • Stretching
  • Fatigue Management
  • Cognitive Rehabilitation
