Taking Control of Multiple Sclerosis with Comprehensive Rehabilitation and Wellness Programs
MS Institute Wellness Program therapy manager speaks to Shepherd Center Radio in a new podcast.
Rehabilitation and wellness provide tools patients need to take control of their multiple sclerosis (MS), whether that is through restoring lost function, learning tools to adapt to their functional level or continuing to remain fit and healthy.
The MS Institute Rehabilitation and Wellness Program at Shepherd Center is designed to assist individuals living with MS to learn how to manage their health, improve day-to-day function and gain strength in both a physical and psychosocial sense. Under the guidance of an exercise physiologist, this comprehensive program will teach participants exercises that are appropriate for their physical abilities and promote self-care.
Ian Flannery, MS Wellness program therapy manager, spoke with Shepherd Center Radio in a new podcast, explaining the different approaches of care, and how the program empowers patients to stay active and decrease the effects of deconditioning that can result from MS.
