Fighting Fatigue and Pain

Most people with a long term condition can experience exhaustion and chronic pain, affecting their daily lives. Therapies available at The Herts MS Therapy Centre help people to fight fatigue and pain:

  1. Oxygen Therapy

You’ll find Hertfordshire’s only Hyperbaric Oxygen Chamber at the Centre. Some people find Oxygen Therapy can accelerate healing, increase energy, reduce pain or combat stubborn infections, like leg ulcers. Some find it helpful before or after chemotherapy, radiotherapy or surgery.

Rachel B says: “Without my Oxygen Treatment I would still be in agony from Fibromyalgia and probably jobless and depressed.  I can’t begin to explain what a difference it has made for me.”

  1. Physiotherapy & Exercise

Physiotherapists and Personal Trainers work together to help people achieve greater mobility and reduce fatigue. Sessions are at the fully equipped gym in Letchworth or via a home visit.

Francis R has MS. She says: “I lost my confidence and needed support. The personalised exercises have restored my confidence in leading a more independent lifestyle.”

  1. APS Pain Clinic

Pain Reduction Therapy is an effective, drug free treatment for less pain, more energy and faster healing. Research has found a beneficial result in around 80% of people.

Brian H attends the Pain Clinic. He explains: “I did the six week APS Pain Reduction Programme. I have had pain free mobility for the first time in nine months, despite moving furniture last week.”
