Abstract

Multiple Sclerosis (MS) is a chronic and progressive central nervous system (CNS) disease with a largely unknown etiology. It is an autoimmune demyelinating disorder that causes inflammation and scarring on the myelin sheaths of neuronal axons. Because it affects the CNS, it has many debilitating signs and symptoms that involve the sensory, motor, cognitive, and autonomic systems (Capriotti, Noel, & Brissenden, 2018).
