Pediatric multiple sclerosis
Multiple Sclerosis is a chronic condition in which scars are formed on neurons in the central nervous system. This debilitating disease is growing ever more common in the United States. Although the disease manifests itself more often in adults, studies suggest that 2-5% of all cases of Multiple Sclerosis occur in children under the age of 18. The analysis of the disease of Multiple Sclerosis as well as three different types of treatment including physical and occupational therapy, alternative therapies, and medicinal therapies gives an idea of how what the disease is and how it plays a role in pediatrics.
