What is MS?
Multiple sclerosis (MS) is a neurological condition that affects the brain and spinal cord. More than 130,000 people in the UK have MS, and most are in their thirties, forties and fifties.
MS symptoms are different for everyone. Physical symptoms often include loss of balance, stiffness and speech problems, while other symptoms can include fatigue, pain, and problems with mental health and memory. For most people, MS gradually gets worse over time and people find they need more and more support.
There is no cure for MS, but there are lots of different treatments and alternative therapies available which help relieve symptoms. These include exercise, physiotherapy and oxygen therapy, which are all available at the Samson Centre.
