Q&A With Lacey Bromley From the University of Buffalo: Balancing Physical Therapy in Multiple Sclerosis Patients with Movement Disorders

Lacey Bromley, PT, DPT, NCS, MSCS, from the University of Buffalo discussed how gait and movement disorders can be addressed during the 2015 Annual Meeting of the Consortium of Multiple Sclerosis Centers in Indianapolis. Bromley said functional evaluations are important in determining proper treatment options for the patients. When working with these patients Bromley said they cannot be given a "packaged exercise routine," and need more individualized care.
