Welcome to the Wolverhampton MS Therapy Centre

Multiple Sclerosis is one of the most common neurological conditions among young adults, affecting around 100,000 people in the UK. lt is an autoimmune disease, in which the body's immune system mistakes friend as foe. Immune cells mistakenly attach fibres and their protective· insulation, the myelin sheath in the central nervous system. The resulting damage prevents the nerves from 'firing' properly and ultimately leads to their destruction, resulting in physical and intellectual disabilities.

MS is so called because it involves a multiple scarring (sclerosis) of the nervous system (brain and spinal cord). The scarring causes random damage to the 'wiring' of the brain which can produce severe disabilities such as loss of mobility and muscle co-ordination, impaired speed and vision, loss of balance and sensory perception, incontinence, extreme fatigue and pain. Despite the fact that 150 years have elapsed since the first recorded case of MS, neither the cause nor a cure for the disease is yet known and 1 in 700 persons in the UK has MS.
