Multiple sclerosis is an autoimmune condition that affects the whole central nervous system – brain and spinal cord. This means that symptoms can be very wide-ranging and can vary hugely in severity from person-to-person. Those with a remitting disease pattern may find that their own symptoms will stabilise, sometimes for long periods, alternating perhaps with shorter periods of relapse. Many clients find that they wish to consult a neuro-physiotherapist at various stages of their condition; as early as immediately after diagnosis, or at any time after. Physiotherapy will be individualised to the client, and may include gentle exercise, stretches and soft tissue work, advice on workplace posture and seating, and programmes for balance and gait.
