Intensive balance-specific physiotherapy improves balance in people with multiple sclerosis

Takeaway

  • Balance-specific physiotherapy improves static balance in people with multiple sclerosis, particularly if therapy is more intense.

Why this matters

    Impaired balance affects 75% of people with multiple sclerosis and is a primary cause of disability. The observation that intensity of treatment and severity of disability are key drivers of physiotherapy success could help clinicians to tailor physiotherapy to each individual.
