Multiple Sclerosis ppt

  1. 1. Multiple Sclerosis Also called: MS Stacey Louisa Bock Occupational Therapist Namakwa District
  2. 2. I feel . . . by Jayne Adler, May 2000 MS is an unnerving disease I feel like a jumble of loose, unattached parts like a sackful of detached, separate and separating parts a connect-the-dots portrait I feel like I'm at the seashore with the sand disappearing from beneath my feet as the tide roll out. I have tides within my body. They speak to me in Morse code, all dashes and dots, telling me what ? tides rage within me when I stand, swaying motion threatens to pull me over pushing and pulling, the waves crash within me The ebbing and flowing within my personal tides threaten my integrity
  3. 3. ABOUT MS  Multiple sclerosis (MS) is a condition of the central nervous system.  In MS, the coating around nerve fibres (called myelin) is damaged, causing a range of symptoms.  It's normally diagnosed in people between the ages of 20 and 40, and affects almost three times as many women as men.  Once diagnosed, MS stays with you for life, but treatments and specialists can help you to manage the symptoms.  We don't know the reason as to why certain people are more susceptible in developing MS then others, and we haven't yet found a cure, but research is progressing fast.
  4. 4. WHAT HAPPENS IN MS? how the central nervous system works
  5. 5. • MS is complex and can cause many different symptoms. • It is not uncommon for a diagnosis to take several months… or even longer.
  6. 6. TYPES OF MS Relapsing remitting MS is the most common type of MS, affecting around 85 per cent of everyone diagnosed.
  7. 7. TYPES OF MS Secondary progressive MS is a stage of MS which can come after relapsing remitting MS.
  8. 8. TYPES OF MS Primary progressive MS affects about 10 to 15 per cent of people diagnosed with MS. Symptoms gradually get worse over time, rather than appearing as sudden attacks (relapses).
  9. 9. TYPES OF MS BENIGN MS • If you have a small number of relapses followed by a complete recovery, you may be described as having benign MS. Benign MS can only be diagnosed retrospectively.
  10. 10. MS in CHILDREN • MS in children is rare. Around five to ten per cent of young people with MS will experience MS symptoms before the age of 16.
  11. 11. MS SYMPTOMS As the central nervous system links all bodily activities, many different types of symptoms can appear in MS. The specific symptoms that appear depend upon which part of your central nervous system is affected and the job of the damaged nerve.
  12. 12. SIGNS & SYMPTOMS
  13. 13. Physical symptoms of MS Vision problems Balance problems Dizziness Fatigue Bladder problems Stiffness / or spasms Other symptoms might include problems with: • Bowel • Speech • Swallowing • Tremor
  14. 14. MEMORY, THINKING & EMOTIONS • MS can affect memory and thinking, and also have an impact on emotions. Like all MS symptoms, you might experience this in varying degrees, or not at all.
  15. 15. SEXUAL PROBLEMS MS can affect sexual function for both men and women. There are ways to manage these symptoms.
  16. 16. CAUSES OF MS No one knows the exact cause of MS, but it is likely that a mixture of genetic and environmental factors play a role.
  17. 17. GENES AND FAMILY HISTORY • There is no single gene that causes it. • It's likely that a combination of genes make some people more susceptible to developing MS. • While MS can occur more than once in a family, it is more likely this will not happen.
  18. 18. ENVIRONMENTAL FACTORS • MS is more common in areas further away from the equator. Viruses • …possible that something in the environment, perhaps bacteria or a virus, plays a role. • No single virus has been identified as definitely contributing to MS, but there is growing evidence that a common childhood virus, such as Epstein Barr virus may act as a trigger.
  19. 19. VITAMIN D • There is also a growing amount of research that suggests that a lack of vitamin D could be a factor in causing MS. • We get most of our vitamin D from exposure to sunlight. Low levels of vitamin D have been linked to higher numbers of people developing many different conditions, including MS.
  20. 20. BUT WHAT CAUSES MS? “Multiple sclerosis is a disease that affects the brain and spinal cord, resulting in loss of vision, balance and sensation.” It is an autoimmune disease. Define ‘autoimmune.’
  21. 21. “With MS, the nerves of the brain and spinal cord are damaged by one’s own immune system. Thus, the condition is called an autoimmune disease. Autoimmune diseases are those whereby the body’s immune system, which normally targets and destroys substances foreign to the body such as bacteria, mistakenly attacks normal tissue.” » WebMD
  22. 22. RESEARCH IN THE AREA OF THE CELL STRUCTURE • Essential nutrients: – 26 vitamins – 72 trace minerals – Fatty acids – Amino acids ALOE VERA IN ITS NATURAL HABITAT
  23. 23. GLYCONUTRIENTS
  24. 24. MANAGEMENT OF MS Disease modifying drugs -reduce the frequency and severity of relapses Diet, exercise and lifestyle -actively manage health Nutrition -dietary supplements
  25. 25. PHYSIOTHERAPY A physiotherapist works with people with MS to assess physical difficulties and help improve movement and other functions of the body. Exercise is one of the key ways in which they do this.
  26. 26. TYPES OF EXERCISE
  27. 27. BENEFITS OF EXERCISE ?? Improve overall health of people with milder MS Help people with more severe MS to stay as mobile & active as possible Help some people manage MS symptoms and decrease the risk of heart disease Improve muscle strength and fitness, helping with mobility or weakness problems Help manage weight control, especially when combined with a healthy, well-balanced diet
  28. 28. OCCUPATIONAL THERAPY (OT) IN MS Occupational therapy can help people with multiple sclerosis stay active in daily life. By improving… skills, teaching alternative ways to complete tasks, or introducing handy equipment
  29. 29. HOW CAN OT HELP? By providing recommendations in the following areas: Arm and hand therapy Handwriting aids Home modification information Driver evaluation and vehicle modification information Cooking and homemaking adaptations Eating and dinnerware adaptations Computer modifications Workplace or work equipment modifications Leisure skill development Manual or electric wheelchair use Bathtub and toilet equipment use Dressing and grooming aids
  30. 30. SPEECH THERAPY VARIOUS TECHNIQUES Speech therapy is a type of rehabilitation Oral that exercises focuses on improving movement of the mouth area. Speech therapy may be Voice part of training a multiple sclerosis treatment Special plan communication if weak facial devices muscles or lesions (damaged areas in the brain) Diet modifications have affected your ability to talk or swallow.
