Balance and MS booklet

Balance problems are a common symptom of MS. For some people, they can just be a small issue that affects them from time to time; for other people, problems with balance can have a major impact on their ability to get about safely.

This booklet looks at how the body’s balance system works, and how MS can affect it. It also offers some helpful ways to manage MS-related balance problems.

If MS has affected your balance, it’s important to remember that there is often something that can be done to help. Many people do find effective ways to improve their balance and feel more confident about getting around.
