Multiple sclerosis (MS) is a neurological condition which attacks the nerves in the brain and spinal cord. MS is a lifelong condition affecting around 100,000 in the UK - about one in every 600.
There is no cure for MS but there is a wide range of possible treatments, one of which is having oxygen delivered under pressure in a barochamber, like a diving decompression chamber, which helps the sclerosis, or scarring, to heal.
This treatment is offered at the MS centre in Oban, along with advice, assistance and support to sufferers, carers, families or anyone affected by MS.
The MS Therapy Centre is a local charity with a team of dedicated volunteers, but is reliant on donations and fundraising activities for its income. Full training will be provided.
Anyone interested in volunteering is welcome you to an open session on Saturday August 19 from 11am to 1pm at the MS Therapy Centre, Glencruitten Road, next to Mossfield Stadium. For inquiries or information, contact centre manager Nicola MacKechnie on 01631 566602.
