Kessler Study Recommends Wellness Program for Multiple Sclerosis

wellness and MSIn today’s healthcare environment, it is often not enough that patients are provided with the latest treatments. Good health is not merely the absence of injury or disease, but overall wellness that includes mental, spiritual and social health. A group of investigators from the Kessler Foundation recently published their findings from a psychoeducational wellness program for patients with multiple sclerosis (MS) — an autoimmune neurological disorder that affects between 300,000 and 400,000 Americans and about 2.5 million individuals worldwide.
The researchers at Kessler conducted a 10-week wellness program and noted several improvements in MS patients. Health benefits were seen in patients’ mood, mental health, perceived stress, and pain. The study is currently available online as “Development and effectiveness of a psychoeducational wellness group for individuals living with MS: Description and outcomes.” in the International Journal of MS Care.
