Multiple sclerosis (MS) is a neurological condition which affects around 100,000 people in the UK. Most people are diagnosed between the ages of 20-40, but it can affect younger and older people too. Roughly three times as many women have MS as men.
Signs and symptoms:
MS is complex, and has many symptoms. Most people won't experience them all, certainly not at the same time. Symptoms might include fatigue, vision problems and difficulties with walking, but MS is different for everyone.
There are lots of options for treating and managing MS. They include drug treatments, exercise and physiotherapy, diet and alternative therapies.
Information & Advice:
We aim to provide accurate and up to date information and advice about MS, giving our clients the support they need quickly, efficiently and accessibly. The MS Therapy Centre helps people living with MS, their families, and carers with information about other service providers and supports them to access these services and receive the help needed to lead an independent life. We also work in partnership with a number of organisations to enable our clients to access the services and/or support they need.
