Centres To Visit

As you will see on this page, I mention a couple of centres in my area that you can go to. However, below are centres within the UK and also organisations across the world.

In the UK there are MS Therapy Centres right across the country, they are local centres, but are part of a national team. From my experience they are a great place to go, as you can have a therapeutic treatment or just go down for a coffee and chat! For information on these centres and to find your nearest one, go to the following website: www.msntc.org.uk/centresearch.php

Looking further afield and internationally, you can contact your own national MS network and I am sure they will have names and addresses of centres and organisations that you can visit.

good place to start is by contacting: The Multiple Sclerosis International Federation (msif) www.msif.org/en/

imageBASIC (Eccles, Manchester): This is a charity organisation that stands for, Brain And Spinal Injury Clinic (BASIC). It offers some great services that help people. I was told about this place from my MS Nurse and I'm only surprised that more people don't know about it. The services offered are accupuncture, remedial massage, employment advice and there is even an assisted gym. It charges for some things, but nonetheless it's very good and reasonable. You could even just pop in for a coffee, as they also have a cafe. There is also a lot more on offer, so for further details visit the website www.basiccharity.org.uk/

imageMS Therapy Centre (NW): This is also a charity that helps people with MS, but also gives support to others, such as local Premier League football teams, who have used their Oxygen tank therapy to help players back from injury. They have a Drop in Centre that carries info on MS from both the MS Society and MS Trust. They also have a Magnetic field bed, Physiotherapy, Reiki, Indian head massage, remedial massage and usually have tea, coffee and cakes on offer, so you can even just nip down for a chat. Once again my MS Nurse told me about it and again I'm only shocked more people don't know about it! There is also much more, visit the website for more information www.tmstc.org/


imageManchester Neurotherapy Centre: I found out about this on the off chance when a physio from there gave a presentation to us at the local MS Society. It provides a type of physiotherapy called Bobath to people who have suffered with a neurological condition. I must say I have been and think it is fantastic! It helps exercise and gets those muscles that have almost become redundant, moving again. However, I must say I find it expensive and it is probably best worth seeing if you can get funding or even claim against a policy you may have, such as Simply Health. However with people travelling there from all around the country, it must be providing value for money!

All treatments are based on the individual, so it is best worth contacting them directly for information on costs and a plan of how they can help www.manchesterneurotherapy.co.uk
