MS Rehabilitation

Multiple Sclerosis Rehabilitation

Multiple sclerosis can have a major impact on multiple aspects of your life. This progressive disease can lead to physical, cognitive and sometimes psychiatric conditions. Symptoms can vary drastically from person to person, but it all involves nerve damage that disrupts the ability of the central nervous system to communicate properly. At Baylor Rehab, we have physical therapists and occupational therapists that specialize in neuro rehab, as well as MS certified therapists trained specifically in treating multiple sclerosis. Our outpatient neuropsychology center can also provide the care you need to manage any behavioral or psychiatric issues brought on by MS.

We provide you with coordinated care and a supportive environment to facilitate continued rehabilitative services throughout your disease management. The following services are available to patients managing multiple sclerosis.
