Multiple sclerosis (MS) affects nerves in the brain and spinal cord, causing a wide range of symptoms including problems with muscle movement, balance, and vision. In many cases, it’s possible to help treat symptoms through Conductive Education.
Those who practice Conductive Education have an excellent understanding of Multiple Sclerosis (MS) and its symptoms. We create unique programmes either individually or as a group to take individuals with Multiple Sclerosis through tasks in a variety of positions while learning to use our voice at a particular rhythm to help movement. We understand that fatigue can be a huge issue for someone suffering with Multiple sclerosis and base our sessions around them being able to move and then rest. Through the way we deliver our programmes we are able to facilitate the completion of our sessions while improving stamina and focusing on specific aims related to Multiple sclerosis.
We also work towards maintain and improving mobility, how to change position safely, using our speech and breathing to help movement, and also looking at ways to increase levels of independence. Sessions will be differentiated for each individual as we recognise Multiple sclerosis affects each person because of the varying types – relapsing and progressive. We also understand how no two people’s condition will be exactly the same, and we take the time needed to fully understand someone’s symptoms, mental health and journey so far.
