Disease-modifying treatments aim to prevent or reduce the number of MS relapses that occur and thereby reduce the accumulation of disability over the person's lifetime.
A number of treatments have been tested for MS symptoms with some success, particularly when combined with other management techniques. Find out more.
When disease-modifying treatments do not work effectively, or a relapse occurs, there are other treatment options available. Find out the details.
For many people with MS, pharmacological treatment alone is not enough. Rehabilitation can improve mobility and allow a person to continue and function in their daily life.
Many people use complementary or alternative therapies alongside conventional treatments. Find out which work for MS and which to avoid.
