Abstract

Multiple Sclerosis or MS, is a chronic disease that is prevalent in over 2 million people worldwide [1]. Symptoms of MS vary among individuals but most commonly will have fatigue, decreased functionality, GAIT issues, balance issues, and mentally with depression and anxiety [2,3]. The main problem assessed through this project was proving the importance of PT in improving the quality of life of these patients who as of now, do not have a cure. So, PT has been found to positively influence quality of life (QOL) in both physical and mental capacities.
