Physical treatment

The most important goals of physiotherapy in MS patients are to alleviate the existing symptoms of the disease in the form of pain, fatigue, muscle spasms and urinary tract, to improve and preserve mobility at the highest possible level, and to enable daily activities, self-care , professional activity and social contacts.

In MS, the use of electrotherapy (electrostimulation, drug electrophoresis, diadynamic currents, interferent currents, transcutaneous electromechanical stimulation), magnetotherapy, laser therapy, hydrotherapy (swimming, exercise, massage), kinesitherapy (exercise), work therapy and primary aids function.

Exposure to heat can lead to deterioration of the symptoms of the disease, and it is therefore prohibited to use those physical agents that create heat in the body, e.g. high-frequency current KTD. Also, pool water in hydrotherapy should not be warmer than 29oC.
In MS patients, rehabilitation in hospital conditions in rehabilitation centers and neurology departments is recommended, as well as in home conditions, if the patient is previously trained in exercises. Arriving at the outpatient clinic causes a lot of fatigue to be avoided in this disease.

For rehabilitation, professional rehabilitation teams comprise physiotherapist, physiotherapist, speech therapist, social worker, nurse, and in cooperation with a neurologist. A physiatrist for each patient, in view of the very many disorders, makes a special rehabilitation program that suits this patient.

Treatment of relapse and some symptoms
Routine therapy for acute relapses is an intravenous high dose of corticosteroids, usually methylprednisolone at a dose of 500 to 1000 mg daily for three to five days. The aim of this therapy is to stop the attack as soon as possible in order to keep as little a consequence of this attack. Although generally effective in short-term symptom relief, corticosteroids do not have a significant impact on long-term recovery. In addition, longer therapy with corticosteroids can lead to osteoporosis, high blood pressure, psychotic reactions, convulsions, and cataracts.
