Total Rehab Care is sponsoring multiple sclerosis clinics on the first and third Tuesday of every month starting Tuesday, Feb. 16, from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. at Robinwood Medical Center, Suite 201, 11110 Medical Campus Road, Hagerstown.

A variety of health professionals, including physical and occupational therapists, will conduct assessments for MS patients, according to Janice Mentzer, a social worker at Total Rehab Care.

In addition, the clinics will offer information on gait training, splinting, strength training and stretching, energy conservation, counseling, cardiovascular health and bowel, bladder and pain management, Mentzer says.

A physician's prescription is required.

The clinics are meant to look at the whole spectrum of how MS affects the individual, Mentzer says.
