Multiple sclerosis, or MS, slows down your nerve impulses and over time this may weaken important muscle groups, particularly in your legs. If you find leg weakness is a problem, your medical team will evaluate you and suggest the right treatment.

One option to consider is bracing. A brace is an assistive device that helps to support your legs and provides you with greater ease in mobility. Your doctor or therapist will evaluate you and recommend the type of bracing that will address your symptoms best.

Your care team will work with you to make sure the brace is fitted properly, and provide you with therapy and instruction to help you get the most out of your brace.
