The four Different Types of Multiple Sclerosis

Depending on which type of Multiple Sclerosis you have, the disease progression and symptoms will be different. So it’s important to have a physical therapist that understands the different types, how they affect your body, and how you can best manage your movement problems and maintain your active lifestyle.

Relapsing Remitting

With this type of MS, patient will experience unpredictable attacks (exacerbations), followed by a period where symptoms may resolve completely..

Secondary Progressive

Secondary progressive develops over time when symptoms from relapses do not completely resolve and periods between relapses shorten.

Primary Progressive

With this type of MS, their is no sign of remission after the initial attack.  Pt. develops symptoms that worsen over time

Progressive Relapsing

This is the least common subtype which is characterized by progressive decline combined with clear “attacks” or relapses.

The Signs & Symptoms of Multiple Sclerosis

MS is an inflammatory disease that effects the myelin of the nerves of the brain and spinal cord. Myelin is the insulating sheath around nerves that allows nerves to communicate with each other. This attack on the nerves causes lesions (plaques or scarring) to form. The treatment varies greatly based on the severity and symptoms.

HEAR FROM OUR PATIENTS

“I have been dealing with the struggles that a person with MS has for the last 15 years. I have mobility issues, spasticity, etc, etc. When I was referred to Tara I was at first skeptic of seeing another therapist because I have not had any success with all the previous ones. I do not regret the decision of giving it another try! First of all the treatment is tailored to your needs and you don’t have to see a different therapist on every visit. She develops a plan just for you. I would recommend ONT any day. If you have a need for a therapist and you want to make your life better do yourself a favor a pay her a visit!”

“Tara is Awesome! She has helped my Mother stand and walk with assistance after having a major stroke last year. She is the most dedicated person in her profession. She is determined to see that her patients achieve the most they can and continue to strive to meet their goals. She has never given up hope for Mom and we don’t know what we would have done if we had not been introduced to her. Thank you so much Tara for your continued enthusiasm and support!”

Christine H.

My daughter suffered a severe hemorrhagic stroke in February, 2016. She received 6 weeks of inpatient therapy, as well as months of outpatient therapy. She, unfortunately, suffered several falls and broken bones, and also developed severe spasticity of the left foot/ankle. I found Tara on the website around December of 2017 and called her about my daughter. She evaluated her and immediately began a vigorous treatment plan. We, at this time, were becoming quite discouraged and looking for hope. Now, just 6 months latter, the progress my daughter has made is beyond anything we could have imagined at the time we met Tara. Every session Tara works extremely hard, is focused and uses a great bedside manner to elicit results from her patient. She shares the joys of her patient and their family when improvements are made, and she shows great pride in her skills. Tara is the best physical therapist we have had the privilege of working with. When we began with Tara, my daughter was confined to a wheelchair, she now is able to get that left foot flat and walk with assistance. Tara also helped us secure a new brace that actually works. Also, my daughter loves going to her therapy. sessions!
