Multiple sclerosis (MS) is a chronic disease that attacks components of the central nervous system such as the brain, spinal cord, and optic nerves. As it progresses, it can cause difficulty with coordination, mental and physical energy, and cognitive functions, such as memory and processing speed.
As MS is a degenerative disease, too many individuals assume it will only “get worse." You may rationalize that it doesn’t make sense to do speech and cognitive therapy, after all “my speech is fine." Often, your speech is fine, but how about focus and memory? Many of our patients have reported living a more fulfilling, less stressful life after working with us on planning, energy management, attention, memory, and word finding as common examples. We can help you functionally so you can maximize your energy, be more engaged with your family, take better care of yourself, and ultimately enjoy your life more.
