Multiple Sclerosis (MS) Treatment at Dr. Srikanth Neuro, Hyderabad

Comprehensive Care for Multiple Sclerosis

Multiple Sclerosis (MS) is a chronic autoimmune disease that affects the central nervous system, leading to a range of physical and cognitive impairments. At Dr. Srikanth Neuro, we offer specialized care for individuals with MS, utilizing the latest diagnostic tools and treatment options to manage symptoms and improve quality of life.

Understanding Multiple Sclerosis

MS occurs when the immune system mistakenly attacks the protective sheath (myelin) that covers nerve fibers, causing inflammation and damage. This disrupts communication between the brain and the rest of the body, leading to the varied symptoms of MS.

Symptoms of Multiple Sclerosis

  • Physical Symptoms: Muscle weakness, numbness or tingling, spasticity, difficulty walking, and balance problems.
  • Visual Symptoms: Blurred vision, double vision, and loss of vision.
  • Cognitive Symptoms: Memory issues, difficulty concentrating, and impaired problem-solving skills.
  • Other Symptoms: Fatigue, dizziness, bladder and bowel dysfunction, and emotional changes.

Diagnostic Services

At Dr. Srikanth Neuro, we use advanced diagnostic techniques to accurately diagnose MS:

1. Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI)

  • Purpose: Detects lesions or areas of damage in the brain and spinal cord.
  • Applications: Primary tool for diagnosing MS and monitoring disease progression.

2. Lumbar Puncture (Spinal Tap)

  • Purpose: Analyzes cerebrospinal fluid for signs of inflammation or specific proteins associated with MS.
  • Applications: Supporting evidence for an MS diagnosis.

3. Evoked Potentials Tests

  • Purpose: Measures the electrical activity in the brain in response to stimuli.
  • Applications: Detecting delays in nerve conduction caused by demyelination.

4. Blood Tests

  • Purpose: Rule out other conditions that may mimic MS symptoms.
  • Applications: Differential diagnosis to ensure accurate identification of MS.

Treatment Options

Our specialists at Dr. Srikanth Neuro develop personalized treatment plans based on the type and severity of MS, which may include:

1. Disease-Modifying Therapies (DMTs)

  • Purpose: Slow the progression of MS and reduce the frequency and severity of relapses.
  • Applications: Medications such as interferons, glatiramer acetate, monoclonal antibodies, and oral treatments.

2. Symptomatic Treatments

  • Medications: To manage specific symptoms such as muscle spasms, pain, fatigue, and bladder issues.
  • Steroids: Used to reduce inflammation and speed recovery during acute MS attacks.

3. Physical and Occupational Therapy

  • Physical Therapy: Exercises to improve strength, mobility, and balance.
  • Occupational Therapy: Techniques to assist with daily activities and enhance independence.

4. Cognitive Rehabilitation

  • Purpose: Address cognitive symptoms through targeted exercises and strategies.
