If you’re living with multiple sclerosis (MS), this ability, called -neurological reserve,” can help delay the onset of MS symptoms. A growing number of MS experts are pointing out the importance of neurological reserve and the role it plays in slowing the progression of MS-related disability. In this way, neurological reserve can actually keep you from experiencing MS symptoms early on in the disease. For people with MS, neurological reserve also gets used up as the brain recruits new areas to help compensate for brain tissue damaged by lesions. According to The Multiple Sclerosis Brain Health Initiative (a report issued in 2016 by a group of MS specialists), there are a number of things you can do to keep your brain as healthy as possible and maximize neurological reserve.
