Most people with MS find that their symptoms are best managed when they combine medication with rehabilitation, exercise, and/or lifestyle modifications. Physical and occupational therapists can help people with MS to:

  • Improve, strength, mobility, balance, and posture
  • Manage fatigue and pain
  • Maintain skills essential to a good work and home life

NewYork-Presbyterian offers comprehensive rehabilitation services for people with MS. Physiatrists, occupational and physical therapists, speech-language pathologists, therapeutic recreation specialists, and rehabilitation nurses provide a variety of services, including rehabilitation, home modification evaluations, speech and swallowing evaluations, and communication assessments.

Over time, some patients with MS become increasingly disabled, and may need devices such as canes and wheelchairs. Rehabilitation specialists help patients obtain and learn to use these assistive devices.
