And, importantly, view the impact of MS through the eyes of individual patients who generously tell their stories of how they build their lives around their abilities, not their disabilities.
The road to a cure for MS lies ahead. Along the way, clinicians, physicians, and patients are sharing their stories of working toward that goal at The Multiple Sclerosis Journey. We invite you to join them.
Walk with us.
Multiple sclerosis won’t stop April Hester from going the distance – literally. She and her husband have embraced exercise as an outlet to improve symptoms and quality of life, largely through hiking. After having hiked the Palmetto Trail in South Carolina three times, they now plan to hike the entire Appalachian Trail.
About one in every three patients with multiple sclerosis (MS) uses complementary medicine in addition to conventional disease-modifying therapy.
Major federally funded studies are underway to help neurologists better assess a growing array of multiple sclerosis treatments, including competing tablets.
But in the near term, physicians and people with MS will continue to have to make certain educated guesses when choosing medications.
During the past few decades, research has made clear that multiple sclerosis causes not only physical disability but also cognitive problems.
When it comes to treating patients with multiple sclerosis (MS), a new study shows that physicians and nurse practitioners (NPs) score similarly in regard to patient satisfaction.
