Primary Progressive Multiple Sclerosis: What You Need to Know
Created as a joint project between the Multiple Sclerosis Association of America and the National Multiple Sclerosis Society, this is the first published book dedicated entirely to the Primary Progressive Multiple Sclerosis (PPMS) population. Written by top experts in the field, initial chapters address how PPMS differs from other types of MS, how it is diagnosed, and ongoing research into possible treatments for this form of the disease. Later chapters provide detailed explanations on topics such as: the benefits of rehabilitation; symptom management treatment options; technology and adaptations; maintaining wellness; emotional and quality of life issues; family and social issues; carepartner support; and economic issues. A glossary and an extensive resource listing are included. This is a valuable and informative publication for everyone in the PPMS community.
