MULTIPLE SCLEROSIS (MS)
Multiple sclerosis (MS) is a disease that affects the white matter or myelin sheath, causing the appearance of sclerosis plaques that hinder normal operations of those nerve fibers. Thus, depending on where those plaques are affected patients have different symptoms (mobility, visual, sensory or cognitive problems, difficulty to maintain concentration, fatigue, etc.)
MS has different forms of presentation, the most predominant form is relapsing-remitting, in which the patient has an outbreak that occurs with a specific symptomatology which is recovering gradually.
NEUROREHABILITATION THERAPY AND ITS BENEFITS
The neurorehabilitation process of MS must be approached from the globally of the patient and depending on individual’s needs. Neurorehabilitation is the only practical method to improve the functions of MS patients.
- A neurorehabilitation program that begins in the early stages of the disease improves the quality of life in patients. In addition, patients can improve their physical and emotional conditions and prevent future complications.
- The scheduled neurorehabilitation therapy improves fatigue and cognitive efficiency in patients with MS.
