Individuals with MS within the Utah County struggle to find individualized and MS-specific PT rehabilitation and wellness services to address their symptoms and health needs. Healthcare providers trained in providing MS-specific services are aware of various strategies and resources for managing chronic symptoms of the disease and therefore, significantly enhance the health-related outcomes in these individuals.
