Multiple Sclerosis (MS) is an autoimmune inflammatory disease affecting the insulating covers (myelin sheath) of the nerve cells of the brain and the spinal cord affecting normal function. Though the disease was first documented in 1868 by Jean-Martin Charcot, no definite cause or treatment plan has been discovered. Signs and symptoms for MS range from being physical, mental and also in some cases psychiatric. Since a definite cure for the disease is not available, the best way to treat it is by attempting to restore affected body functions with physiotherapy and related treatment techniques.
Physical Therapy for Evaluation
MS displays a varied range of signs and symptoms, so detecting the disease is very difficult. The evaluation process requires specific assessment of various bodily functions to determine the disease occurrence.
