Description

Offers those with MS easy-to-learn techniques that help them regain the energy to fully engage in life.

People with multiple sclerosis commonly resort to caffeine, sugar, medications, and other substances to combat the problem of fatigue, with mixed results and uncertain health effects. Research has shown that the drug-free energy conservation techniques taught by occupational therapists have a positive impact on an individual’s ability to deal with this debilitating symptom.

Written by an experienced occupational therapist, this book offers those with MS easy-to-learn techniques that help them regain the energy to fully engage in life. Too often, people with MS give up the activities they enjoy in order to accomplish the day’s chores. This book supplies the tools they need to manage their time and activities in order to do both. Lowenstein’s expertise on fatigue management, rehabilitation, and environmental modifications make this an essential guide for dealing with fatigue and multiple sclerosis
