Book Description:

In clear language and using helpful illustrations, this comprehensive guide deals with both the symptoms of multiple sclerosis and the most effective, clinically tested ways to help patients manage the disease. All symptoms are discussed, from spasticity, tremor, and fatigue to bladder, bowel, and sexual difficulties. In addition, newer ways to manage complex and routine symptoms are explored. The book, now in its fifth edition, covers the most recent advances in drug therapies and other treatments, including new discoveries, recently developed medications, and medical breakthroughs. Also included are an overview of the disease, a glossary of common medical terms, a list of helpful exercises, and information on transfer and mobility resources. Organized to reflect the three areas of MS management — management of the disease, management of its symptoms, and management of lifestyle and general wellness issues — the book is an invaluable reference for MS patients, families, and providers.
