Rehabilitation can help people regain, keep, or improve the physical or cognitive abilities they need to successfully navigate their daily lives, which makes it an important aspect of managing MS. In this episode of RealTalk MS, we're focusing on a concept that may not be as familiar to you — prehabilitation, a proactive approach to maintaining your mobility and independence longer.
Returning to RealTalk MS to discuss the value and benefits of prehabilitation is the National MS Society's Associate Vice-President for Research, Dr. Kathy Zackowski.
This week, you'll also meet Matt Knaggs. Matt was diagnosed with MS in 2020, and in a short amount of time, Matt has literally covered a lot of ground, including running a 12-hour ultra-marathon and launching a Facebook group with a unique perspective.
And we'll remind you that this Thursday, August 17th, is Burgers to Beat MS day at A&W locations throughout Canada.
We have a lot to talk about! Are you ready for RealTalk MS??!
