Once a diagnosis is made, MNI physicians employ the most advanced treatment options available, including:
- Injectable immunomodulators
- Agents used to treat debilitating symptoms of MS, such as fatigue and bladder dysfunction
We are experienced in the appropriate use of aggressive therapies, sometimes required for severe cases.
Therapeutic goals are driven by the maintenance of function and focused on maintaining patients at the highest level of function possible. Our treatment philosophy is grounded on the early identification of disease and early use of immunoactive agents to prevent the progression of disease. All medical regimens are individually constructed based on the stage of illness.
Therapy & Rehabilitation at TIRR Memorial Hermann
Rehabilitation is an integral part of a patient's treatment plan. In order to optimize patient outcomes, we work closely with physical and occupational therapists to provide services for adults who will benefit from the coordinated and specialized rehabilitation services. These services are provided at the Neurorehabilitation Program at the Mischer Neuroscience Institute and at TIRR Memorial Hermann.
TIRR Memorial Hermann is the only center in Houston - and one of only seven designated centers in the nation - in the Christopher and Dana Reeve Foundation NeuroRecovery Network.
