Multiple sclerosis (MS) is an autoimmune disease that damages the central nervous system. This condition makes the immune system attack healthy cells in the myelin, the protective layer surrounding brain and spinal cord nerves. When the myelin is damaged, the nerve fibers are exposed, which makes the messages traveling through them slowed or blocked.
Like many other immune diseases, the cause of MS is still unknown. Studies show that a combination of environmental and genetic factors could be responsible; however, there is no reason present in every case. It is unclear why some people develop multiple sclerosis and others do not.
People often experience different symptoms and effects from multiple sclerosis. Some symptoms include numbness, tingling in hands and feet, mood swings, memory loss, body pain, fatigue, blindness, or paralysis.
Multiple sclerosis can lead to difficulty walking, loss of bowel or bladder control, memory problems, or sexual difficulties.
Patients with multiple sclerosis might develop severe weakness, leg paralysis, muscle stiffness, cognitive problems, depression or anxiety, and sometimes seizures, among other less common complications.
Treatment for multiple sclerosis depends on the disease’s stage and the patient’s specific condition. Typically, a team of healthcare professionals supports MS patients, including neurologists, rheumatologists, physiotherapists, and other specialists.
The treatment cost depends on your health requirements and medical insurance particularities. So please, feel free to call us about any inquiry for information regarding multiple sclerosis treatment.
There is no cure for multiple sclerosis, yet treatments such as prescribed medication, muscle relaxants, physical rehabilitation, and disease-modifying therapies focus on managing symptoms and slowing the disease’s progression.
Multiple sclerosis symptoms can be addressed at home with the assistance of a skilled registered nurse. They can help patients with mobility and meds management. Furthermore, our licensed therapists might help with rehabilitation activities to improve the patient’s quality of life.
A licensed specialist should conduct every physical therapy session. Although patients with multiple sclerosis usually maintain acceptable mobility, there could be some fears and restraints in the later stages of the disease.
At Signature, we have the experience and resources to provide the best support for the patient and the family. Also, our registered nurses may help with early assistance and could support the treatment and rehabilitation process.
