In clear, understandable language and with helpful illustrations, this book explores every symptom of MS and discusses clinically tested and proven methods for the proper and effective management of each. No symptom is omitted: from spasticity, tremor, weakness, and fatigue to bladder, bowel, and sexual difficulties. An enlightening overview of the characteristics of MS, a useful glossary of common medical terms, and a list of helpful exercises round out this comprehensive coverage.

This extensively revised fifth edition remains the definitive guide to managing the symptoms of MS, but also focuses on disease and personal management strategies. It is based on the management program developed at the oldest comprehensive MS Center in the United States, The Fairview MS Center in Minneapolis, Minnesota USA. The disease management section has been expanded to reflect the growth of our knowledge in this area. Newer ways to manage complex and routine symptoms are explored. The book has been substantially reorganized to better reflect the three areas of MS management - management of the disease, management of its symptoms, and management of issues relating to lifestyle and general wellness.

Review:

"Recommend[ed] not only for patients but also for doctors and other health professionals that, although not specialised in MS, come in contact with these patients."-- Scandinavian Journal of Rehabilitation Medicine

"...provides a roadmap for patients and professionals to symptomatic relief of MS symptoms... Schapiro doesn't merely provide medical or surgical solutions - he offers lifestyle strategies as well."-- PA Today

"A very helpful book for those who treat multiple sclerosis patients...The book is recommended for neurologists, general physicians, physiotherapists and postgraduate students." -- World Neurology

"Ably written by Dr. Randall T. Schapiro...and now in a newly updated and expanded fourth edition, Managing The Symptoms of Multiple Sclerosis is a practical, informative, and medically sound instructional guide to dealing with the day-to-day difficulties induced by MS...especially commended as being a 'reader accessible' resource written especially for those with MS and their medical/familial caretakers""-- The Bookwatch

"This book is written for people with multiple sclerosis, but the comprehensive contents would be of use to undergraduate students or junior practitioners unfamiliar with the area. As such, it would be a useful resource for any multiple sclerosis group or treatment centre and a helpful addition to a departmental library." --Physiotherapy (Physiotherapy 20100503)
