Multiple sclerosis is an unpredictable, often disabling disease of the central nervous system that disrupts the flow of information within the brain, and between the brain and body. Symptoms range from numbness and tingling to blindness and fatigue. According to the National Multiple Sclerosis Society, the disease affects more than 2.3 million people worldwide.

Allied Services Integrated Health System offers people living with multiple sclerosis access to highly trained and experienced physical, occupational and speech therapists, wellness programs, advanced rehabilitation technology including adaptive exercise technology and a monthly support group.
