Multiple Sclerosis

Multiple Sclerosis (MS) is an inflammatory, chronic, degenerative disorder that affects nerves in the brain and spinal cord. Myelin, the fatty substance that surrounds and insulates nerves and facilitates conduction of nerve impulses is the initial target of inflammatory destruction in multiple sclerosis.

MS is characterised by intermittent damage to myelin, called demyelination. Demyelination causes scarring and hardening (sclerosis) of nerve tissue in the spinal cord, brain and optic nerves. Demyelination slows conduction of nerve impulses, which results in weakness, numbness, pain and vision loss.

Because different nerves are affected at different times, MS symptoms often worse (exacerbate), improve and develop in different areas of the body. Early symptoms of the disorder may include vision changes (e.g. blurred vision, blind spots), numbness, dizziness and muscle weakness.

MS can progress steadily or cause acute attacks (exacerbations) followed by partial or complete reduction in symptoms (remission). Most patients with the disease have normal life span.

It’s tempting to avoid exercise when you have MS. You might think that you’ll wind up feeling fatigue, discomfort and pain. But it’s just the opposite. Lack of exercise leads to deconditioning that over time reduces your functional abilities and leaves you feeling worse.

Exercising regularly, on the other hand, helps to preserve your mobility and reduce your fatigue. Physical activities may also help improve muscle spasms, balance and coordination.

We at gaman physio care teaches you the safest ways to exercise for your symptoms and condition. over the first few sessions, we gets to know you and your limitations and we design a individualised physical therapy plan that challenges you not strains you.
