In clear, understandable language and with helpful illustrations, this book explores every symptom of MS and discusses clinically tested and proven methods for the proper and effective management of each. No symptom is omitted: from spasticity, tremor, weakness, and fatigue to bladder, bowel, and sexual difficulties. An enlightening overview of the characteristics of MS, a useful glossary of common medical terms, and a list of helpful exercises round out this comprehensive coverage.
This extensively revised fifth edition remains the definitive guide to managing the symptoms of MS, but also focuses on disease and personal management strategies. It is based on the management program developed at the oldest comprehensive MS Center in the United States, The Fairview MS Center in Minneapolis, Minnesota USA. The disease management section has been expanded to reflect the growth of our knowledge in this area. Newer ways to manage complex and routine symptoms are explored. The book has been substantially reorganized to better reflect the three areas of MS management - management of the disease, management of its symptoms, and management of issues relating to lifestyle and general wellness.
