Knowledge is Power: Treating Yourself Well

Treating Yourself Well

Because a cure has not yet been found for MS, the interventions prescribed are not designed to make MS go away. Instead, the various treatments, including medications, self-care strategies, exercises and adaptive aids are designed to slow disease progression, manage symptoms, maximize abilities and prevent complications.

In this section you will learn more about the strategies for treating relapses (also called attacks or exacerbations) and managing symptoms, as well as the steps you can take to enhance your overall health and well-being.
