How is MS treated?
The management or treatment of MS can broken up into 6 interrelated categories:
- Secondary Prevention
- Enhancing recovery from relapses
- Symptomatic therapy
- Disease modifying therapy
These categories or steps are not meant to be achieved sequentially although certain steps will come before others. Instead, they are meant to work together to help you achieve the best outcomes possible. They will also change over time so be prepared to continue learning.
I encourage you to thoroughly read everything on the treatment page for this website READ MORE
and to utilize the HealthCare Journey tool READ MORE so you can see what steps you can take depending on whether you have not yet been diagnosed or recently diagnosed.
