What is Multiple Sclerosis?
Multiple Sclerosis is a lifelong autoimmune condition where the body’s immune system attacks its own tissues, most commonly affecting the brain and nerves. It is not clear why MS happens, and it cannot currently be cured, but there are a range of medicines and other treatments that can help alleviate symptoms and improve your quality of life. Symptoms of Multiple Sclerosis include:
- Problems with balance and walking
- Issues with vision
- Muscle spasms
- Problems with thinking, learning and remembering things
- Bladder issues

Types of Multiple Sclerosis
There are four main types of MS and we will adapt our Multiple Sclerosis care package depending on the case of the individual, ensuring you receive the best plan for you.
Relapsing-Remitting Multiple Sclerosis (RRMS) – The most common form of MS, this affects over three quarters of those diagnosed. It is characterized by flare ups of MS where your symptoms flare up, followed by periods where you have little to no symptoms.
Secondary-Progressive MS (SPMS) – Secondary-Progressive Multiple Sclerosis is the second stage of MS that usually occurs from a course of relapsing-remitting and is when your MS gets steadily worse. You will no longer experience relapses when your symptoms are temporarily better.
Primary-Progressive MS (PPMS) – Primary-Progressive MS (PPMS) is less common and affects around 10-15% of those who are diagnosed with MS. This type differs from the others as it is progressive right from the offset and symptoms gradually worsen with no sudden relapses.
Progressive-Relapsing MS (PRMS) – This is the rarest form of Multiple Sclerosis and affects around 5% of people with MS.
