Welcome to Norton Community Medical Associates

Norton Community Medical Associates, located in Louisville, is committed to providing exceptional healthcare services and support to individuals with multiple sclerosis (MS). Our dedicated team of healthcare professionals specializes in offering comprehensive resources and personalized care for MS patients.

Understanding Multiple Sclerosis

Multiple sclerosis is a chronic neurological disease that affects the central nervous system. It occurs when the immune system mistakenly attacks the protective covering of nerve fibers (myelin) in the brain and spinal cord. This leads to communication problems between the brain and the rest of the body, resulting in various physical and cognitive symptoms.

At Norton Community Medical Associates, we strive to educate our patients about multiple sclerosis, empowering them to actively manage their condition. Our team of neurologists and healthcare professionals works closely with patients to develop personalized treatment plans and provide ongoing support to enhance their quality of life.
