The Multiple Sclerosis Center of Greater Washington

Health Care the way you imagined

CLINICAL TRIALS

In addition to providing you with the care you deserve, the Center is involved in the latest Multiple Sclerosis research. Along with familiar disease modifying options, there are new innovative therapies being developed. The MS Center is actively participating in these new treatments, and often has them available as clinical trials for patients. By offering these clinical trials to our patients, we are expanding their treatment options.

MS TREATMENT

The management of MS involves decreasing signs of disease progression, in addition to treating the day to day symptoms that affect a person’s quality of life. Successful Multiple Sclerosis therapy involves traveling down both of these paths and receiving guidance to do so. The menu of options for the treatment of MS has become increasingly more complex, and you deserve a personalized care plan that fits your MS and you.

INFUSION SERVICES

In our infusion suite, you will find a relaxed, friendly environment. What you do with that time is up to you: finish up work with complimentary Wi-Fi, catch up on your reading, watch a movie from our DVD selection (or bring your own) or nap. Know that you are in good hands.

Going out into the sun, without sunscreen for 30 minutes, the sun can produce that amount in only 30 minutes ! Other ways to naturally add Vitamin D are adding fatty fish, such as salmon, and more fortified products in your diet. The Bizarre Link Between MS and Vitamin D  

MOTTO TO LIVE BY

Life should NOT be a journey to the grave with the intention of arriving safely in an attractive and well preserved body, but rather to skid in sideways, chocolate in one hand martini in the other, body thoroughly used up, totally worn out, and screaming,”WOO HOO, what a ride!”
