How can physical therapy help?

Physical therapy for people with MS focuses on helping them return to the roles performed at home, work, and in the community. After determining impairments, activity limitations, and participation restrictions, a physical therapist can develop a specific care program based on one’s condition and goals.

When someone receives a diagnosis of MS, the best option is to begin physical therapy right away to help improve any mild challenges and possibly slow down the progression of the symptoms of the disease.
