Multiple Sclerosis Program at OhioHealth
A Team of MS Specialists Focused on Your Care
Because MS presents differently in each patient and varies in aggressiveness, we personalize treatment plans to you and your needs. At OhioHealth, patients with multiple sclerosis (MS) have access to personalized care — all in one place — by an interdisciplinary team of specialists who, together, provide comprehensive care throughout the course of their disease.
MS Care Beyond Clinical
If you need additional specialized care to manage your symptoms or if you’re interested in non-medication alternatives, we offer several options that set our MS program apart. Our neurological rehabilitation therapists help MS patients manage their symptoms for a better quality of life. We offer:
MS physical therapy, customized to your needs
Pelvic floor physical therapy for bladder control and sexual function
Vestibular physical therapy for vertigo and dizziness
Speech therapy for cognitive impairment and swallowing difficulties
Wheelchair seating clinics and driving and functional evaluations
We offer an MS Wellness Program at OhioHealth McConnell Heart Health Center to improve your overall health and fitness and, ultimately, your quality of life.
Spasticity is a common symptom of MS that refers to stiffness and involuntary muscle spasms that can be painful. Our spasticity program is one of the largest in the country, offering intrathecal baclofen and Botox® injections and other therapies. We also offer stretching techniques to help relieve symptoms.
