Multiple Sclerosis


Multiple Sclerosis

Physiotherapy can make a significant difference in the lives of those affected by Multiple Sclerosis (MS), it plays a crucial role in the holistic management of MS addressing both physical and functional limitations to enhance overall well-being and independence.

MS causes damage to a substance called myelin which protects the nerve fibres in the central nervous system, and helps messages travel quickly and smoothly between the brain and the rest of the body. In MS the immune system mistakes myelin for a foreign body and attacks it, causing damage to the myelin leaving scars known as lesions or plaques. This damage disrupts messages travelling along nerve fibres between the brain and the rest of the body, meaning that they can slow down, become distorted, or not get through at all.

As well as losing the myelin, there can sometimes be damage to the actual nerve fibres too. It’s this nerve damage that causes the increase in disability that can occur over time.

MS is a complex neurological condition that can present a wide range of symptoms, including fatigue, muscle weakness, balance issues, cognitive issues and mobility impairments. While there is currently no cure for MS, physiotherapy offers valuable support and management strategies to help individuals maintain independence and improve their quality of life.

At Neurobility our expert physiotherapy is tailored to meet the unique needs and goals of each individual with MS. Everything we do is geared towards maximising independence and reducing the impact of MS on the person. We believe that if the body is as fit and strong as it can possibly be any impact from MS is on a body that is best equipped to cope, rather than a body that is already weak and unfit. We will give individually tailored exercise programmes to focus on the aspects that are impacted by MS, and offer regular review to make sure the condition is managed proactively. We can support with hands on physiotherapy as well as one to one or group exercise sessions. This is all supplemented by the technology we have available in the clinic such as the LiteGait, MMGO and electrical stimulation devices.
