It has been an absolute pleasure to meet the team at the MS Therapy Centre in Edinburgh. The MS Therapy Centre is located I’m Swanfield Industrial Estate just off Great Junction Street in Leith.
Multiple sclerosis affects the central nervous system, specifically the brain and spinal cord. This neurological condition disrupts communication between the brain and body, commonly affecting coordination and balance. Symptoms typically develop gradually over the course of several years. However, the rate of progression varies amongst individuals. The severity of these symptoms can be mild, moderate or severe. Depending on the number of lesions in the brain or spinal cord.
As regular readers know, I have multiple sclerosis and I do like to raise multiple sclerosis awareness at every possibility. Now, perhaps I was being a sceptic or maybe I was just being my usual fatalistic self. But, I have known about hyperbaric treatment for multiple sclerosis and never considered undertaking the therapy for myself. However, my brother-in-law has just commenced the treatment himself and is very positive about the prospects.
Furthermore, I always feel the need to help my fellow MSers. And when I find a treatment that works is must shout about it from the highest point.
Hyperbaric Oxygen treatment works. It is not a cure for MS but, it can eradicate many of the symptoms. I have just completed my initial protocol and I can really feel the benefit. When one decides to have the therapy, the knowledgeable staff will design a treatment plan for you. My treatment plan comprised an initial protocol of 15 hyperbaric sessions over a four-week period.
MS Therapy Centre Edinburgh
The staff and volunteers are a wonderful bunch of people who all make you feel very welcome.
At the Edinburgh MS Therapy Centre, you will find a group of dedicated volunteers aided by a small core of permanent staff. The operation is wholly funded by charitable donations and your help is needed. Like all charities, they often find it difficult to find sufficient financial backing.
And, this is where you and I can help by putting our hands in our pockets and giving a little assistance.
They have recently teamed up with Edinburgh Community Lottery allowing you to name them as your preferred charity when purchasing your lottery tickets. So, head over to the Edinburgh Community Lottery and sign up for a few weekly lottery tickets. 60% of the ticket money will be given to the MS Therapy Centre and you will be helping a very good cause.
Alternatively, you can go directly to the website of the MS Therapy Centre and give them your donation from there.
What is Multiple Sclerosis?
Multiple sclerosis is a debilitating disease of the central nervous system in which the insulating covers of nerve cells in the brain and spinal cord are damaged. MS causes problems with muscle control, balance, vision, and other basic body functions. The progress, severity and specific symptoms of MS in any one person cannot yet be predicted, but advances in research and treatment are leading to better understanding and moving us closer to a world free of MS.
Every year, thousands of people are diagnosed with MS. It has an immense impact on the lives of those who suffer from it, and their loved ones. This is why it’s important that you’re aware of the symptoms and causes of MS so that if you or a loved one is diagnosed with it, you’ll be better informed and able to fight its effects.
What is Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy?
Hyperbaric oxygen therapy is a treatment used to heal wounds, burns, and other conditions by administering 100% oxygen in higher than normal atmospheric pressure. This treatment is often used for divers because it can help with decompression sickness, but it’s also used for many other medical applications. Learn how it works and the benefits of hyperbaric oxygen therapy today.
Hyperbaric oxygen therapy is a medical treatment using 100% pure oxygen in an isolated chamber. The chamber is pressurized to twice the normal air pressure. Patients breathe pure oxygen under pressure while the therapist monitors the patient’s response to the treatment. HBOT is used for conditions or illnesses that are resistant to conventional treatments or that are treatment-resistant.
You can help the MS Therapy Centre
Both you and I can help the MS Therapy Centre in Edinburgh. You could, if you live within a reasonable travelling distance, volunteer to help run the hyperbaric chamber. Sadly, I live too far away to be able to attend every day so, I will help by purchasing Edinburgh Community Lottery tickets. Over the next few years, I expect to receive a sizable inheritance, at which point I will gladly become a sponsor of the MS Therapy Centre.
