Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis, more commonly known as ALS, is a neurodegenerative disorder. It progressively causes motor neurons that serve as the neural highway from brain to spinal cord to muscles to degenerate. As neurons die, the ability of the brain to control muscles and movement weakens. Eventually this decay leaves a person with nearly zero control over body movement.
The disease is most common in people who are between the ages of 40 and 70. Initial symptoms can be varied. For some, difficulty in simple tasks such as lifting a mug or writing with a pen may be the first symptoms. For others, it can be an unusual change in a voice’s pitch.
Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis (ALS) is a neurological disease which impacts motor neurons that are involved in muscle movement throughout the body.
Stem Cell Therapy is gaining acceptance as an alternative treatment method for numerous neurodegenerative disorders such as ALS. Stem Cells primarily act to aid in replacement and repair of damaged cells. In addition to this, Stem Cells aid in patient recovery by altering the motor neuron’s environment helping protect neurons against further degeneration.
Unique Access Medical is a leading provider of Stem Cell Therapy. Our treatments make use of higher dosages of Mesenchymal Stem Cells to be able to better treat neurodegenerative disorders.
