Jp multiple sclerosis Jp multiple sclerosis Presentation Transcript

  • Multiple Sclerosis
    By: Jerrod Parker
  • Overview
    Multiple sclerosis (MS) is a disease affecting the myelin sheath which also affects the central nervous system (CNS)
    In MS there is a loss of myelin causing an interference with nerve conduction.
    MS is an autoimmune disease, meaning the body attacks specifically the CNS.
  • MS Training
    Fatigue is a common occurrence in individuals with MS. In order for a person to participate in a training program with MS, its important to allow for adequate rest and recovery.
    Its important to be well aware of their lack of balance and coordination when training a person with MS.
    Patients with MS have very low tolerance to heat so it is critical to be aware of the environment.
  • Signs and Symptoms
    Spasticity
    Heat intolerance
    Incoordination
    Muscle weakness or paralysis
    Numbness and sensory loss
    Impaired balance
    Tremor
    Cardiovascular dysautonomia (dysfunction of the autonomic nervous system causing possible problem with cardioacceleration and reduction of BP response)
  • Causes
    The cause is unknown
    Studies have shown that genetics and/or the environment can be a factor in causing MS
  • Medications
    Amantadine may temporarily reduce fatigue
    Baclofen, Amitriptyline, fluoxetine, hyoscyamine sulfate these may cause muscle weakness
    Prednisone may cause muscle weakness, reduced sweating, hypertension, diabetes, and osteoporosis
    Interferon beta – 1a, produce flu like symptoms
    Glateramer acetate.
  • Effects of Exercise
    Exercise can help improve strength endurance and aerobic fitness
    However exercise does not affect the progression or the prognosis of MS
  • Risk With Exercise
    It’s important to be aware of the symptoms of MS prior to exercise
    Without proper knowledge and consideration of symptoms associated with MS a person could have negative side affects or become greatly injured
