Multiple Sclerosis Care Available for Seniors in Downey

Most people have heard of Multiple Sclerosis (or MS) but not many people actually know what it is, how it is caused, or what the symptoms entail? So to educate our audiences, potential clients and caregiver alike, we at A-1 Home Care of Downey would like to give you a small crash course on what having MS means to those diagnosed.

By definition, MS is an immune-mediated process in which an abnormal response of the body’s immune system is directed against the central nervous system (CNS), which is made up of the brain, spinal cord and optic nerves. What than means is that, an antigen (of which is currently unknown) triggers the immune system to work against the nervous system. 

The effects can include damage to the myelin coating around the nerve fibers in the central nervous system (CNS) and to the nerve fibers themselves interferes with the transmission of nerve signals between the brain, spinal cord and the rest of the body. Disrupted nerve signals cause the symptoms of MS, which vary from one person to another and over time for any given individual, depending on where the damage occurs.

So what can be done if you or a loved on is diagnosed with MS?
