You’ve probably heard of multiple sclerosis or might even know someone who has it, but what is it, and what causes it? How is it treated?

Dr. Nicholas Lannen from Spectrum Health, who specializes in treating patients with Multiple Sclerosis, discusses what MS is, and how they help treat it.

Multiple Sclerosis is a disease that affects the central nervous system, disrupting the communication between the brain and the body.

Common symptoms of MS include vision loss, fatigue, and numbness.

Medications and therapy can help slow the progression of multiple sclerosis, however, as of right now there is no known cure.
