Welcome to the Rocky Mountain MS Center’s Patient Resources. The pages collected here are educational resources for patients, family members, caregivers and anyone else interested in MS care.
The Rocky Mountain MS Center and our partners at the Rocky Mountain MS Center at University of Colorado advocate for a fundamental philosophy of maximizing lifelong brain health through early and effective treatment and adoption of a healthy lifestyle.
Our understanding and ability to treat multiple sclerosis has evolved dramatically over the past 30 years. Prior to 1993, there were no approved therapies for MS. Today there are more than 20 approved disease modifying therapies (DMTs) to treat MS and the development of drugs is rapid and ongoing.
In that time we’ve also learned that the brain’s own ability to protect itself over time is a critical factor in slowing and even stopping the progress of MS.
This leads to our comprehensive approach to treating and living with MS, which you’ll see take shape in the resources collected here.
