Answer

Treatment consists of immunomodulatory therapy for the underlying immune disorder and management of symptoms, as well as nonpharmacologic treatments, such as physical and occupational therapy (see Treatment). In the United States, various disease-modifying agents for MS are currently approved for use in relapsing MS.
