WESTMINSTER, Maryland — Therafit Rehab, one of the Mid-Atlantic’s premier providers of physical, occupational and speech therapy for people with neurological conditions or traumatic injuries, announced it will host a free workshop on multiple sclerosis (MS) for all ages at 5 p.m. Thursday, March 26, at its therapy centers in Baltimore, Towson and Westminster, Maryland, and Middletown, New Jersey.
Therafit Rehab’s licensed physical and occupational therapists will conduct the hour-long workshop, which will provide attendees with education on stretching various muscle groups and why stretching remains important, functional exercises that help restore lost mobility, natural remedies to selected symptoms, tips on reducing fall risk, and more. This will include demonstrations and time for questions and answers regarding all levels of MS progression.
“A diagnosis of multiple sclerosis does not have to mean loss of independence or the ability to do what you love,” Justin Gilligan, vice president at Therafit Rehab, said. “We have been treating MS patients successfully for years, and we’re happy to share the tips and lessons we have learned along the way in order to help them restore or maintain their mobility and independence.”
These workshops are open to the public and intended for people of all ages who have MS. Spouses and loved ones are welcome to attend. Advance registration is encouraged as space is limited. Register online at therafitrehab.com/MS-workshop or by calling your local Therafit Rehab.
