Multiple Sclerosis

Managing multiple sclerosis requires a comprehensive approach because it is a very complex disease. Multiple sclerosis (or MS) is an incurable condition that affects every patient differently. It’s also an ongoing disease that may change throughout its course. However, strategies and treatment options make this condition manageable for thousands of patients. Ogden Clinic’s neurologists and staff are trained to help manage the symptoms of MS and even modify or slow the disease course.

What causes multiple sclerosis?

MS is an unpredictable disease of the nervous system wherein the body’s immune system mistakenly attacks the central nervous system. The symptoms of multiple sclerosis can range from relatively benign to disabling, as communication between the brain and other parts of the body is disrupted. Ogden Clinic neurologists and staff aim to address the physical, cognitive, emotional, and rehabilitative needs of the MS patient and their family. A few components of treatment include:

  • Managing MS symptoms with medication and rehabilitation strategies
  • Modifying the disease course
  • Treating exacerbations
  • Promoting safety and function through rehabilitation
  • Providing emotional support

Although there is currently no cure for multiple sclerosis, Ogden Clinic’s MS specialists offer a number of FDA-approved medications that have proven highly effective in treating MS symptoms and modifying attacks. Ogden Clinic’s neurologists are at the forefront of MS treatment and strive to ensure that each patient receives the effective, individualized care they need.
