A story in the New York Times was talking about lifestyle changes. The Article talks about several things a person should and can do that will help when they have Multiple Sclerosis.
REHABILITATION THERAPIES for MS
The article talks about rehabilitation services. Some of those services are physical therapy, occupational therapy, vocational therapy, and speech therapy.
Physical therapists can provide professional guidance on exercise programs. The Physical therapists can also provide advice on how to best use mobility aids (canes, crutches, scooters) and other assistive devices.
Occupational therapists help patients learn how to improve their functioning and independence within their home and workplace environments. They can give advice on what type of tools to use in the home or office.
Vocational Therapy can give guidance to patients so they can manage better in the workplace environment.
Speech Therapy treats problems with speech. This will help the patient to communicate. This type of therapy helps with patients that have a problem with swallowing.
We are finding resources in a non traditional way to raise money to help people with Multiple sclerosis. Multiple sclerosis (MS) is a neurological disorder which attacks the central nervous system; the brain and spinal cord (National Multiple Sclerosis Society, 2013).
Unfortunately at this point in time, there is no cure for multiple sclerosis. The cause of MS is unknown. However, treatments are available to ease symptoms and slow down the course of the disease.
