Our Comprehensive Wellness Approach
At the Swedish Multiple Sclerosis Center, we know that treating MS goes beyond prescribing medication. We call our comprehensive approach “maximizing your well-being.” As part of this approach, we have wellness teams to help you stay as healthy and active as possible – mentally, physically and socially. In addition to medication, we focus on:
Physical well-being: We have one of the few rehabilitation physicians in the country with special fellowship training in MS. At the MS Center, we offer an exercise plan tailored to your condition and symptoms – and you can expect results. Tour our specially equipped gym and talk to our patients about their progress.
Emotional well-being: Emotional health is vital to living well with MS. Our rehabilitation psychologist, neuro-psychiatrist and counseling program help patients and their families cope with the ups and downs of the disease. We also hold workshops on depression, pain management and other topics to promote emotional health.
Community: One of our top goals at the MS Center is to help people with MS stay in their communities. Remaining active with family and friends and at work is an important part of staying strong and positive. We help patients do this with an array of support groups and activities. Our message to you: We care and you are not alone.
