Multiple Sclerosis

We help individuals with multiple sclerosis maintain and improve functions by addressing issues such as spasticity, declining motor function, and sensory alteration. We build on whatever the patient currently can do, improving those abilities so that life is easier for them and independence can be maintained.

Our treatments can help people with a neurological condition achieve their personal goals of maximum fitness, function, and quality of life.

Mobility in walking, climbing stairs, and physical transfer

Hand and arm movement, such as grip strength, dexterity, eating, and drinking

Balance and coordination to prevent falls

Stiffness and tightness in muscles

Pain control

Multiple sclerosis is an autoimmune disorder.

The immune system damages the myelin sheath that covers nerve fibres. This disrupts the signals travelling from the brain to other parts of the body.
