We understand that people who are living with multiple sclerosis (MS) exist in a world that is much bigger than their disease. So we created a community of people who all have the same goal: to empower each other and help rise above MS.
Above MS is a place where you can connect and learn from others within the MS community. We're here to help throughout the MS journey, offering relevant disease education, healthy lifestyle information, and everyday inspiration.
Please keep in mind that your healthcare provider is your primary resource when it comes to your MS and treatment.
It’s our hope that we can support you in different aspects of your life—from talking to your doctor about your treatment plan to hosting a dinner party in your home. No matter what you’re doing, we understand that it’s helpful to hear how other people with MS have done it. That’s where our contributors come in.
Our MS contributors are a very special part of the website. Everyone who contributes to AboveMS.com either has MS, is knowledgeable about MS, or is an expert in their field—including a fitness instructor, an HR professional, and an occupational therapist. Here, they’ll share their experiences with you through articles, videos, and more. With their help, we hope to create a community where people can share their insights and expertise and learn from others who know what it’s like to live with MS. They’ll provide their tips on everything from traveling with MS to creating exercise routines.
You’ll also find articles from Biogen, providing you with additional information on understanding MS, addressing lifestyle changes, and more. It's important to talk to your healthcare provider about your treatment options. We can help you learn about the different types of treatment from pills to infusions. Be sure to discuss how you are feeling and treatment options with your doctor. Together, you can decide which treatment may be right for you.
Take a look around, read some articles, or watch a video or two. You might be surprised by what you find. Don’t forget to sign up for Above MS so you can access all the great features that help simplify the way you view the site. This includes getting recommended articles, and the option to save articles and videos you enjoy. And be sure to come back and visit us often. We’ll be updating our website regularly with new content from our contributors and more.
