The terms “mobility” and “accessibility” refer to being able to get where you want to go and do what you want to do — comfortably, safely, and with a limited drain on your energy.
 
Rehabilitation specialists can help you identify the tools and strategies that best meet your mobility and accessibility needs, keeping you active, productive and involved. Physical therapists, occupational therapists, speech/language pathologists, and physiatrists can help you restore and maintain function, manage symptoms, and identify appropriate tools and strategies to accomplish tasks and achieve your goals.

Staying Mobile can be accomplished through effective symptom management, the use of mobility aids, automobile adaptations and the use of assistance animals.
 
Increasing Accessibility often requires the adaptation of tools and devices at one’s home or work — and becoming an MS activist in the community.
