Multiple Sclerosis

Approximately 85,000 people in the UK have Multiple Sclerosis (MS), the most common disabling neurological condition affecting young adults.

MS occurs when the myelin sheath is damaged. The myelin sheath protects the nerve fibres of the central nervous system, and when damaged, interferes with messages between the brain and other parts of the body. Physiotherapy and the wearing of Sensory Dynamic Orthosis (SDO®) can help with general mobility and function, allowing you to maintain a higher level of independence.

There are 4 different types of MS as follows:

Relapsing MS – (also called relapsing-remitting MS)  is the most common form of Multiple Sclerosis whereby people experience relapses (lasting from a few days to several months) or flare-ups followed by either a partial or complete remission phase during which the disease stops progressing. Symptoms vary in their degree of intensity, new symptoms may occur or existing symptoms may become more severe.

Secondary-Progressive MS (SPMS) – is a secondary stage of MS which occurs in individuals with an initial diagnosis of relapsing MS. SPMS may develop years or even decades afterwards as the disease progresses more steadily with or without relapses.

Primary-Progressive MS (PPMS) – affects approximately 10 to 15% of people with MS. This form of MS progresses slowly yet steadily from the start. Symptoms usually remain at the same intensity with no periods of remission. Patients with PPMS experience a fairly continuous worsening of their condition.

Progressive-Relapsing MS (PRMS) – is the least common form of MS, and described as the steadily worsening neurologic function from the beginning with occasional relapses.
