launching new and exciting programs to further education, explore new

MS Rehab - Might for the Fight
Optimism when fighting a life-altering disease is essential to good mental health. Knowledge of the newest advancements in MS care as well as the real power of a positive attitude are essential to arming yourself in the fight against MS. Strength of mind and body are not only possible but vital - RI Rehab and Back on Track plan to show the world that we have the Might for the Fight.
Dear Activist in the Fight Against MS,
Whether you are newly diagnosed or have been living with MS for decades, the words “Multiple Sclerosis” can be fear-provoking. People who have been diagnosed with MS come from all walks of life, with varying age, gender, ethnicity, occupation, and socioeconomic status. MS can present itself in a multitude of ways - symptomology differs person to person and can be so varied that an individual may notice differing symptoms day to day. While our symptomology, background, and many other variables set us apart, we do share one major commonality: the importance of self-advocacy.
I am immensely pleased to inform you that Rhode Island Rehabilitation Center and Back on Track Physical Therapy are currently launching a comprehensive Multiple Sclerosis Rehabilitation Program. Our programs aim to personalize treatment to the individual, focus on goal setting, provide home exercise programming, and address deficits in any way, shape, or form in which they present. We will work closely with your neurologist in order to provide individualized baseline data as well as updates in status and clear tracking of improvements made throughout treatment. Our physical therapists, physical therapy assistants, occupational therapists, massage therapists, nutritionists and fitness experts have undergone extensive training in the MS field and remain current on the latest research, treatment techniques, and innovations in the MS domain. We pride ourselves in MS specific expertise, and in the spirit of becoming a vital advocate for yourself, we invite you to learn more about all that we have to offer.
Feel free to contact me directly, email@example.com, or dial (866) REHAB-MS and ask to speak with me regarding MS rehab treatment. There is much to learn and much to be gained through rehabilitative therapies - I look forward to our journey together.
Courtney Macksoud, DPT, MSCS
