How MS impacts Veterans

When I was first diagnosed with MS I was scared. I was concerned and unsure of my physical and mental well-being, and the impact it would have on my family and friends. I did a lot of soul searching and decided that I was going to fight this disease as best I could.”

MS Symptoms

I was told by my neurologist that I had developed secondary progressive MS… I was and am still afraid of the future. I like very much what my nurse practitioner at the AMC in Washington, DC once said to me, 'Do not let this disease become you.' … [Each person with MS] must do their very best to avoid letting this occur… acknowledge the anger and seek help to deal with it.”

PoNS Therapy is helping Veterans improve their walking ability.
Just ask Captain Kevin Byrne

After living with MS since 1999, gait difficulties took away my most valued treasure: quality adventures with my 13-year-old daughter. My focused PoNS Therapy helped me improve my walking, and as a result… I experienced freedoms such as increased walking speed, endurance, and distance. As a reward for her support and motivation, Rogue and I will vacation in New York City to walk the streets of Manhattan and enjoy our favorite Broadway musicals! Thank you for the experiences I thought were lost forever.”

Individual results and experiences may vary. Talk to your doctor to see if PoNS is right for you.
