Challenging Multiple Sclerosis – A Patient Undergoes Treatment to Regain his Ability to Walk Unaided

Rashid’s multiple sclerosis had worsened to the point where his speech and memory were severely affected.

Rashid’s multiple sclerosis had worsened to the point where his speech and memory were severely affected. Even keeping his balance and walking short distances without support had become impossible.

Despite his deteriorating condition, Rashid was determined to challenge his multiple sclerosis. He wanted to be able to walk again, to study and work, and to start a family.

Rashid started treatment at Cleveland Clinic Abu Dhabi, which included physical therapy and rehabilitation sessions to help improve his movement and balance. He says the support and efforts of the caregivers, along with his treatment have helped him regain his ability to walk unaided.
