Getting There: Problem-Solving Mobility Challenges
Mobility and movement, like nearly every aspect of multiple sclerosis, are individualized for each person with MS and support partner. Nonetheless, some common mobility themes are consistent for many living with the disease: challenges related to walking, transferring, and “wheeling” (use of wheeled mobility).

In this article, learn strategies for overcoming these challenges so you can get where  you  want to go and participate in activities  you  want to do.

Grey Matter: A Strong Indicator of MS Progression
