The Authors report their experience in a patient with Multiple Sclerosis. The planning and the follow up of rehabilitative treatment were based on clinical, functional, electrophysiological and posturographic evaluation. The impairment degree was evaluated by Kurtzke's Expanded Disability Status Scale. The electrophysiological evaluation showed an abnormal recruitment flexor pattern at exteroceptive stimulus and posturography confirmed postural control disorder. The treatment was based on PNF techniques and postural feedback on standing balance platform. After rehabilitative treatment the clinical and functional improvement has been confirmed by normal exteroceptive flexion reflex and better stabilometric parameters.
