Multiple Sclerosis

The Honolulu Pain Management Clinic LLC has expertise in managing the pain associated with this disease.




Multiple sclerosis – Multiple sclerosis (MS) is a disease of the nervous system in which the insulating covers of nerve cells in the brain and spinal cord are damaged.  Treatments attempt to improve function after an attack and prevent new attacks. Multiple sclerosis is the most common autoimmune disorder affecting the central nervous system. In 2013, about 2.3 million people were affected globally with rates varying widely in different regions and among different populations. A person with MS can have almost any neurological symptom or sign, with autonomic, visual, motor, and sensory problems being the most common. Although there is no known cure for multiple sclerosis, several therapies have proven helpful. The primary aims of therapy are returning function after an attack, preventing new attacks, and preventing disability. [1]
