Multiple Sclerosis

Physiatry for Patients With Multiple Sclerosis (MS)

Multiple sclerosis (MS) is a disease that affects the brain and nervous system. This disorder causes the immune system to attack the body, affecting the fatty matter that wraps around the nerves. Today, MS affects about 400,000 people in the United States and 2.5 million people across the world. MS is a progressive disease. Although there is no known cure, treatments and rehabilitation can help impede the progression of multiple sclerosis.

Rehabilitation Services: Develop a Treatment Plan with Your Physiatrist

Having a doctor of physical medicine and rehabilitation (PM&R) on your team can provide a major resource for patients with MS. Your treatment may encompass medication management, including short-term use of steroids and long-term use of specific disease-slowing drugs. These may be used in conjunction with additional therapies designed to manage symptoms. At Washington Township Medical Foundation, our goal is always to help our patients achieve the highest quality of life while prioritizing functionality and mobility.
