March is Multiple Sclerosis Awareness Month: What is MS?

Written By: Kristen Faigle, PT, DPT, OCS, COMT, SportsCare Waldwick Clinical Director

March is Multiple Sclerosis Awareness Month. Multiple Sclerosis is a chronic disease that affects the central nervous system.

Physical Therapy plays an integral role in the management of common symptoms including weakness, stiffness, fatigue, and pain.

Physical therapy intervention programs consisting of strengthening, balance training, stretching, and aerobics can improve symptoms in order to slow down disease progression and maintain an active lifestyle.

Aquatic therapy is also a beneficial low-impact form of physical therapy as the joints are offloaded from the buoyancy of water increasing the ease of movement.

At SportsCare Physical Therapy we offer aquatic therapy and our skilled and licensed physical therapists have experience treating patients with Multiple Sclerosis and other neurological conditions.
