Treatment for MS

Multiple Sclerosis disease can’t be cured but the symptoms can be controlled and progression slowed down. 

Every person suffers from multiple sclerosis in a different way, so medications and treatments have to be customized.

Multiple sclerosis (MS) is widely believed to be an autoimmune condition – the body’s immune system mistakenly attacks, and subsequently damages, the ‘myelin sheath’ protecting nerve cells in the brain and spinal cord. 

This damage causes messages to and from the brain to be slowed, distorted or stopped altogether. This is what leads to the symptoms of MS.
