Managing Multiple Sclerosis
the Shepherd Center Way

Shepherd Center’s Andrew C. Carlos Multiple Sclerosis Institute uses a wide range of neurological and rehabilitative services to treat people with multiple sclerosis. Our experienced staff is committed to aggressively slowing the progression of the disease.

At Shepherd, multiple sclerosis treatment and care are specific to an individual’s needs and goals. It is one more way we turn “I Can’t” into “I Can” for thousands of patients.

"I can’t control the disease, but I can stop it from controlling me."

The comprehensive neurological and rehabilitative multiple sclerosis services make all the difference for patients like Ashley Payne.

The team at Shepherd challenged the ever-moving Type-A veterinarian and outdoor enthusiast with an uncomfortable truth—she needed to learn to slow down in order to keep going. It was not easy, but tough love rarely is.

Thanks to that comprehensive plan, Ashley got back on the hiking trails just one year after her flare-up.

None of the Andrew C. Carlos Multiple Sclerosis Institute’s support services — including psychological counseling, educational programs, vocational services, nutritional counseling, recreation therapy, and wellness programs — would be possible without the generous support of so many. Thank you for being such an essential part of the Shepherd community.
