Multiple sclerosis is a chronic, neurological disorder that affects the entire central nervous system. It occurs when your immune system starts to attack healthy cells in your brain and spinal cord. As nerve cells become damaged, they can no longer send or receive messages. MS symptoms vary in type and severity from one person to another and can range from numbness and tingling sensations to blindness and paralysis. Symptoms of the disorder also include cognitive and sensory problems. Physical therapy for multiple sclerosis can help you manage these symptoms.
