MS and mobility issues

MS is a condition that can cause a number of different symptoms and it is difficult to predict what symptoms an individual may experience. There are three main types of MS – relapsing-remitting, primary progressive and secondary progressive. Relapsing-remitting MS is where an individual will experience periods of time where their symptoms will flare up and periods of time where they will not be noticeable. Primary progressive is where the symptoms will increase over time and secondary progressive is when an individual with relapsing-remitting MS no longer has periods of time where they experience no symptoms.

Some of the common symptoms experienced by those with the condition can include fatigue, problems with vision, tingling and numbness in the body, mobility problems and muscle spasms and weakness.

There are a number of ways that individuals with MS can be supported and these include the use of Walking Aids, like the ones from https://www.abilitysuperstore.com/collections/walking-aids to help with walking and the issues that the condition can cause with an increased risk of slips, trips and falls. Other pieces of equipment can also support individuals with daily tasks such as getting dressed and showering.
