Live Fully, Live Well - Mobility

 
 

Meeting Description:

Often there is hesitancy among people with Multiple Sclerosis and their support systems to pursue and then use mobility aids because it may be viewed as “giving in” to the MS.  November’s special Live Fully, Live Well webinar with Mandy Rohrig, Physical Therapist, discusses a variety of mobility aides, their purposes, and potential advantages of their use.  You will learn how these devices help you to optimize your mobility, manage your MS, and improve your quality of life.


There will also be a question and answer period with Mandy where viewers can submit questions.

This comprehensive program will be archived on the Can Do MS website: www.mscando.org. You will be able to watch it your convenience if you’re unable to attend live.
