Rehabilitation in progressive MS
The multiplicity of symptoms that arise as a result of MS means that the physical, cognitive and psychosocial consequences are often wide ranging, variable and complex. To date rehabilitation remains the mainstay for the management of progressive MS, with few disease modifying treatment options currently available. This talk provides an overview of the evidence base for multi-disciplinary physical rehabilitation intervention, and aims to encourage you think about the application of this evidence to your clinical practice.
