Multiple Sclerosis is a condition of the central nervous system. The immune system doesn’t work properly in such a way that the coating around nerve fibers is damaged causing a range of symptoms such as trouble walking, feeling tired, muscle weakness or spasms, double vision and poor bladder and bowel control.
How can I help you?
The purpose of physiotherapy sessions is variable because multiple sclerosis is a progressive disease and the effects are different for everyone who has the disease.
The most important is to keep your body functioning for the longest time possible. For that, I will help you keeping joints free, carrying on walking with additional help if needed (crutches, walker…), maintain a good respiratory capacity to be able to fight chest infections, give you advice how to change position with ease. I will check regularly common issues such as bed sores, swollen legs and will work with you to prevent them. I usually communicate with your nurse and doctor to advise them if a problem becomes worse.
