4. Is Restorative Rehabilitation Helpful?
In addition to medication to help end the relapses, patients may also be recommended restorative rehabilitation to help cope with the consequences of the attack. The purpose of a restorative rehabilitation program is to help patients regain or maintain their normal functions needed for the quotidian. Right after an MS relapse, patients may be advised to seek restorative rehabilitation in order to get back on track.
“The members of the rehab team — including physical therapists, occupational therapists, speech/language pathologists and cognitive remediation specialists — address problems with mobility, dressing and personal care, role performance at home and work, and overall fitness. They also provide evaluation and treatment of speech and swallowing difficulties and problems with thinking and memory that may have appeared or worsened during the exacerbation.”
