Multiple Sclerosis Care
Multiple Sclerosis is a degenerative disease that has a broad range of symptoms that affect the individual’s cognitive and physical functioning. Multiple Sclerosis affects the ability of nerve cells in the brain and spinal cord to communicate effectively with each other. The body’s immune system damages an insulating substance called myelin in which axons are contained, and this affects the axon’s ability to conduct signals. This leads the individual to seek numerous options for Multiple Sclerosis Care.
Symptoms of MS vary between people, and can occur in discrete relapse attacks where new symptoms can further the progression of the disease or symptoms of the disease accumulate over time in a progressive manner. People with MS may suffer from loss of sensitivity, muscle weakness, difficulty moving, problems with coordination and balance, speech and swallowing problems, vision problems, fatigue, incontinence, chronic pain, and behavioral changes.
