NICE Recommends FES for MS Drop Foot


The National Institute for Health and Clinical Excellence published guidelines earlier this year on the use of Functional Electrical Stimulation (FES) for dropped foot. They recognised the use of FES as an effective evidence based treatment for dropped foot. It is particularly good news for people with MS that the guidance specifically refers to its application in those with lesions of "central nervous system origin".

We offer a FES Clinic at the Berkshire MS Therapy Centre. For further information please contact our Physiotherapy Manager ruth@bmstc.org of call 0118 901 6000 and ask to speak to Ruth or Mohamed.
