Multiple Sclerosis (MS) is a neurodegenerative condition affecting the coating of the nerves (myelin). Myelin protects nerves and allows a smooth path for messages to travel from the brain. When this is scarred and not working as it should, individuals may experience altered movement, vision and cognition.
There are different types of MS and each affects people uniquely and at different rates. A diagnosis and prognosis from a Neurological consultant assists in formulating the best treatment plan for the individual.
Physiotherapy helps in maintaining mobility and movement, often helping in relapsing and remitting periods of the condition to continue with movement as best possible so that recovery is faster.
