Multiple Sclerosis Treatment

Multiple Sclerosis (MS) is a disease that affects the brain, spinal cord and optic nerves which make up the central nervous system. Over time multiple sclerosis can lead to vision problems, muscle weakness, loss of balance or numbness in the upper and lower limbs. People between the ages of 20 and 40, particularly women, are more likely to have multiple sclerosis.


Every patient is unique with their symptoms however common symptoms include: 


If MS progresses and is left untreated, worsening symptoms may lead to complications such as difficulty walking, loss of bowel and bladder control and memory problems. There is no cure for MS but with the right treatment you can manage your symptoms to help improve your quality of life. 


Reddy Care Physical, Occupational and Aquatic Therapy can help treat multiple sclerosis. 

Multiple sclerosis can affect your physical function. Physical therapy for MS may involve stretches to help maintain your mobility and prevent muscle spasms. It may also involve exercises to help strengthen your muscles, improve your gait, balance, and coordination. 


Occupational therapy can help you learn how to take care of yourself when living with MS. An occupational therapist can provide you with the tools and education you need to help perform your daily activities. This may include showering, working, driving, cleaning, cooking, getting dressed and taking your medications. Your daily activities are important especially when the symptoms of MS are known to affect your concentration, memory and make you fatigue. 


If you are suffering from multiple sclerosis symptoms, our experienced team at Reddy Care Physical, Occupational and Aquatic Therapy can help. Your physical therapist and occupational therapist will evaluate and make a unique treatment plan which is tailored to your specific needs.
