Can
MS physical therapy be used to help reduce the symptoms of Multiple Sclerosis?

Doing intense physical therapy with those that have been diagnosed with Multiple Sclerosis can help to reduce ms symptoms and help to improve how well we can function in many ways.

Some of the symptoms of MS that Physical therapy can help to improve include the following:

* reduce spasticity
* increase muscle strength
* increase muscle mass
* improve overall physical balance
* improve how well a person can stand by improving balance during movement
* improve how long a person with MS can stand before they have to sit down and rest, by improving endurance and stamina.

Different Types of Additional MS therapy can include:

Occupational Therapy

* Helps to evaluate a person that has been diagnosed with MS to see if they can return to working again.

* Helps to retrain the person to do average tasks that are required to perform many job-related tasks.

Speech Therapy

* Retrains the person with MS to be able to speak more clearly again, to reduce stuttering, slurring words or problems with forming words or being able to speak more clearly to make it easier to understand what the person affected by MS is trying to say.

Water (Aqua) Therapy

* Allows the person with MS to be able to exercise while reducing the fatigue that is often associated with more intense exercising.

* Can retrain a person to walk again in water, even if they can not walk on land by supporting the weight of the body without added exertion by the person undergoing the therapy.

Horse (Equine) Therapy

* Exercising on a horse strengthens the muscles, and helps to retrain the brain to get used to the movement and natural gait of walking again, even if the person is not able to physically walk for a period of time.

* Equine therapy has the potential of being able to help people, that have been diagnosed with Multiple Sclerosis walk again, by retraining the brain to become more accustomed to what it is like for the body to walk again.

Brain Strengthening Exercises and Therapy

* Helps to redevelop Neural Pathways in the parts of the brain, which have been damaged or confused by the scarring that results from MS.

* This typically involves exercises specifically designed to stimulate and strengthen the parts of the brain that allows those with MS to function better on a daily basis.

* This can include increasing the ability to speak, increasing how well we can form sentences, increasing how well we can think logically, improving memory (both short and long term), increasing the ability to respond to outside stimulation, and improving how quickly our brains can respond to what is going on around us, and increasing cognitive function, including many other functions that the body performs daily.

Brain Retraining Therapy

* Helps to retrain how the brain responds to any stimulation by basically resetting what is considered the average brain wave pattern to be at a higher level.

* Several different methods, medical devices and techniques fall under this category, that stimulate the brain in different ways to help improve how well the individual can function.
