Relationship Between Balance Confidence and Social Engagement in People with Multiple Sclerosis

MS can impact almost all components of the postural control system, including afferent pathways (sensation, vision), efferent pathways (muscle strength, coordination), and information processing. (Soyuer et al., 2006, Comber et al., 2018, Cameron and Nilsagard, 2018) As a result, many people with multiple sclerosis (pwMS) have balance impairments and fall. (Cameron and Nilsagard, 2018) Like people with other chronic medical conditions, particularly conditions associated with disability, pwMS also have reduced social engagement.
