The help of a professional physiotherapist can be invaluable to people with Multiple Sclerosis.
Physiotherapists can advise you on exercise and other steps you can take to help with flexibility, balance, strength and mobility. They can also help with access to equipment to assist with mobility.
Before contacting the NHS physiotherapy service it will help to think about the assistance you need. Have you had a fall or sustained an injury? Or do you want general help because of your MS? This will affect whether it is best to see a Musculoskeletal Therapist or a Community Physiotherapist.
The NHS provides physiotherapy services throughout Moray and you can refer yourself by filling in a referral form which can be picked up at your doctor's surgery. You can also ask your GP or the MS Nurse to refer you. The physiotherapy admin office can be contacted on 01343 567322 if you have any queries.
You can also contact physiotherapists at your local community hospital or, in Elgin, the Glasgreen Centre which is on 01343 553060.
