Abstract

In Europe, theoretical approaches to physical therapy and rehabilitation in multiple sclerosis often appear signifi-cantly different. While there is general agreement that rehabilitation plays an important role in maintaining andimproving function in persons with multiple sclerosis, no consensus exists on what may be the most effectiveapproach to achieve the best possible functionality within an individual’s limitations.The objective of this paper is to initiate an analysis of currently applied physical interventions for people with mul-tiple sclerosis throughout Europe during inpatient or outpatient rehabilitation programs. A study of the content ofrehabilitation may show presently performed treatment methods revealing the basic considerations that nowadaysguide clinicians implicitly or explicitly in the treatment of persons with multiple sclerosis. Following this first step,comparative studies can be set up.
