Multiple System Atrophy Program
Multiple System Atrophy (MSA) is a degenerative neurological disorder of unknown cause associated with the degeneration of nerve cells in specific areas of the brain. This cell degeneration causes problems with movement, balance and automatic functions of the body such as bladder control.
The Parkinson's Disease and Movement Disorders Center at BMC provides comprehensive clinical care for patients with MSA. Clinical services include office evaluation, autonomic testing, medical management, supportive care, counseling and a rehabilitation program. Patients are seen by a neurologist who specializes in movement and autonomic disorders. Additional services include sleep evaluation, urological evaluation, speech therapy, occupational therapy and physical therapy. We also sponsor a MSA Family and Patient Support Group that meets four times per year at Boston Medical Center.
