I've been going to physical therapy for over a year and I am starting to walk again... I strongly encourage it for those that are able. I've went from walking then walker to power chair back to a manual wheelchair to walker now in therapy I'm starting to walk without cane/walker!! It can only do good for someone!!!!

I agree 100% with Rain0413. Find a good Therapist who is familiar with MS patient care. If my insurance would pay more, I would go more. PT really helps. Even after the insurance limit is reached, I have new exercises to do at home - given to me by the therapist.

I am currently working with a physical therapist and it is really helping. They help identify your weaknesses and strengths and then give you exercises to strengthen both. They can also teach you how to properly use assistive devices. I highly recommend it as a great non-pharmaceutical treatment.

Yes. It helps. A good PT can help you develop a simple program to do at home that will help you stay strong for as long as possible. If you can do it, go for it!
