Multiple sclerosis is a chronic and typically progressive disease involving damage to the sheaths of nerve cells in both the brain and spinal cord. This disease, commonly referred to as “MS,” is characterized by symptoms of neuropathy, numbness, impairment of speech coordination, impairment of muscular coordination, blurred vision, and severe fatigue, among numerous others. While treatment such as vestibular rehabilitation is available to manage the symptoms of MS, such treatment is typically accompanied by a wide variety of side effects including dizziness, excessive restraint, muscle weakness, and unsteadiness.
The symptoms of MS make it difficult, if not impossible, for someone diagnosed with the disease to maintain a full-time occupation. Both the exertional and non-exertional tasks required of most occupations are impossible to complete with the sporadic nature of MS flare-ups and its accompanying symptoms.
