Multiple Sclerosis in an unpredictable, often disabling disease of the central nervous system that disrupts the flow of information within the brain, and between the brain and body. More than 2.3 million people are affected by MS worldwide! Linda E. Cardinale battled MS, and is truly an inspiration to us all as a leader in helping those that have also been dealing with the deadly illness. Because of her efforts, The Linda E. Cardinale MS Center offers a 12-week comprehensive program that is designed to address physical and psychological issues associated with MS.
The life-affirming program helps strengthen mind and body through:
Patients learn about best nutrition practices for those with MS, how to manage stress and deal with continence issues, and how to avoid depression.
A cool-water pool, buoys, and other water resistance tools are provided to help patients build strength and improve balance. The program also offers non-certification scuba classes, which help patients improve their balance, while having fun!
Group classes for patients help them to improve movement and increase flexibility through various seated exercises, weightlifting, strength and conditioning, T’ai Chi, and Pilates techniques.
Unfortunately, insurance coverage does not extend to this condition or its medical treatments. It costs a patient $120 to participate in the 12 week MS Wellness Program. That’s why we are on a mission to raise $1,500 in scholarship funds to provide 12 locals to participate.
