Transcript of "Jp multiple sclerosis"

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