Hope For Multiple Sclerosis: YMCA Launches Rehabilitation Program For Multiple Sclerosis Patients, What For? Details Inside
Multiple sclerosis has once again been put to the spotlight after authorities from the Hunterdon County YMCA has recently offered a wellness program at no cost for adults that have been medically diagnosed with Multiple Sclerosis. Dubbed as One Step for MS, the program was known to have been designed in collaboration with the National MS Society of New Jersey and is led by a trained and certified instructor.
Moreover, authorities from the said program have also revealed that the goal of One Step is to enhance an individual's overall quality of life despite their current condition. Being noted as a chronic, unpredictable disease of the central nervous system, the National MS Society of New Jersey has already revealed that multiple sclerosis has already affected over 2.3 million people worldwide.
One Step for MS
According to reports revealed by True Jersey, a number of studies have already demonstrated the benefits of exercise for people with MS. It was found that these benefits include improvement in strength, and mood enhancement. It was further revealed that One Step is a 16-week, 32 session program with curriculum that is supported by the National MS Society of New Jersey which will allegedly happen every Tuesday and Thursday of the week which will start on February 14.
Furthermore, as indicated in the plan, Tuesday will be an aquatic session while Thursday will be a land session. It was found that although participants are encouraged to attend both sessions for a more favorable outcome, authorities have said that they are also welcome to attend either of the sessions.
Other Rehabilitation Programs For Multiple Sclerosis Patients
On the other hand, Multiple Sclerosis News Today reports that for those patients with MS who are allegedly showing any signs of cognitive impairment, a computer-assisted cognitive rehabilitation program might also be the solution. It has been associated with difficulties in short-term memory,or with processing information and concentrating, which is believed to affect 40% to 65% of MS patients. Experts have highly emphasized that cognitive rehabilitation may help, and that computer-assisted therapy that are being used at home could be the standard approach, but few have currently done the investigation on patient outcomes over time.
