Motor Neuron Disease (MND) is a slow, progressive degeneration that eventually leads to the death of motor neurons. End organ functions such as walking, talking, and swallowing become increasingly difficult as the neurons in the brain stem and the spinal cord begin to deteriorate.
Patients suffering from MND generally face progressive weakness in the upper and lower limbs (arms and legs), difficulty in swallowing (resulting in drooling of saliva), or difficulty in articulating. Other symptoms include noticeable twitches in the muscles and difficulty breathing. There are many kinds of MNDs such as:
- Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis (ALS)
- Lou Gehrig Disease, Post-Polio Syndrome (PPS)
- Primary Lateral Sclerosis (PLS)
- Progressive Muscular Atrophy (PMA)
- Pseudobulbar Palsy (spastic)
- Progressive Bulbar Palsy
Through our advanced treatment programs, we have successfully helped rebuild the lives of MND patients from across the country and the world.
