Dissemination is one of the most common neurological disorders.  Is a disease that affects the Brain and the Spinal Marrow.  In particular, the case that covers the nerves, called myelin, it is destroyed and the nerve is damaged.  Myelin plays an important role on the nerve proper function and protection.  Myelin delivers the nerve messages from the brain to the body.  If the myelin and the nerve tissues are injured a body part will not be able to move.  The same happens for senses moving from the body to the brain. As a result, movements will be slow or even unsynchronized.  In addition we have loss of messages going to the brain.  Some of the therapeutic advantages are the following: muscle relaxation; pain reduction; reduction of the muscle contractions and the convulsive movements; increase and ease of the motion range; reduction of the gravity forces; improvement of the lymph and round function; recovery festination and complication prevention; improvement of the neuromuscular commissural, patient independence and functional recovery.
