About this cause
The Ryan MS Therapy Centre runs 13 different small classes offering specialist physiotherapy sessions each week that can help 177 people across Surrey live well with Multiple Sclerosis. Pilates, pain relief, massage, reflexology and counselling are other therapies we offer to give our Members a range of tools to help them best manage their symptoms. Vitally our Centre offers much more in terms of camaraderie. Spending a few hours, a week with others in the same situation gives Members a real lift. MS is a neurological disorder which affects the central nervous system and distorts or stops messages that travel between the brain and the body causing a wide range of symptoms. Currently there is no cure, but our therapies and our support help members get the best quality of life possible.
How this cause brings people in the community together
Everyone with MS, their carers and families, are welcome at our Centre. Our members say that not only do we provide vital therapies to help them with their physical well being, but that having a Centre to come to gives them a sense of community which can avoid them feeling isolated. This along with the support and camaraderie of others, can help them cope with a long term damaging condition.
