Do you also treat multiple sclerosis symptoms?

Dr. Louis Rosner
Neurologist

Until a treatment was discovered to alter the course of multiple sclerosis (MS) and reverse it, the best strategy was the management of symptoms and rehabilitation of persisting problems. With the use of medication, physical therapy, psychotherapy, mechanical devices and good old-fashioned common sense, something can be done to help each and every patient. Treatments may vary with the stage and severity of the disease, but the goal remains the same: to return the patient to normal or as near to normal as possible. Every single symptom can be tackled, and everything that happens in MS is treatable, although some symptoms are more easily treatable than others.
