Multiple sclerosis can be treated with medications called “disease-modifying therapies (DMTs),” which alter the disease course to reduce relapses, delay the progression of disability and limit new disease activity as spotted on MRI.

Unfortunately, DMTs do not treat symptoms of multiple sclerosis.

Your provider will recommend other ways of managing your symptoms. At the Multiple Sclerosis Center, we work closely with a team of rehabilitation specialists, urologists, psychiatrists, pain management specialists and others to provide the best possible care to our patients.

Since every person’s multiple sclerosis –and medical history –is different, it can be difficult and confusing to determine the best DMT for you. It is important to discuss the options with your provider to make an educated decision. When we consider a new DMT for you, we will give you information about the medication so you can read about it before making a decision.
