Multiple sclerosis can cause muscle and joint stiffness, and is due to damage to the nerves in the spinal cord and brain. Multiple sclerosis is a serious disease, however symptoms vary from mild to severe. There are a wide variety of treatment options available. For example, massage therapy increases blood circulation in muscles around joints, which creates more pliable tendons, ligaments, and other connective tissue. More pliable tissue means easier joint movement. The effects of massage can be enhanced by stretches and exercises that maintain a joint’s range of motion and flexibility between massage therapy sessions.
