At MossRehab, we understand that rehabilitation for multiple sclerosis (MS) is a lifelong journey, marked by ever-evolving levels of ability as you achieve milestones and set new goals. Serving the needs of individuals at every level of ability has inspired the extensive and growing number of programs we offer, including oMS Yoga.
