Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis (ALS), otherwise known as Lou Gehrig’s disease is a neurodegenerative disorder that progressively develops over time. It debilitates cells within the spinal cord and brain which are necessary for motor function. At present the disease has no cure, treatments are only for the alleviation of symptoms and discomfort as well as impeding the progression of the condition.
Early symptoms of the disease include cramps and twitching muscles, limb and joint weakness, as well as difficulty in speaking and/or swallowing.
The rate at which the disease progresses varies from case to case. Most patients survive for 2-5 years after the disease first manifests symptoms. Only 10% of diagnosed individuals survive for at least 10 years.
Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis (ALS) is a neurological disease which impacts motor neurons that are involved in muscle movement throughout the body.
While there is no cure for the disease at present, medical science has progressed in terms of hindering the progress of ALS. Unique Access Medical primarily employs Regenerative Treatments, otherwise known as Stem Cell Treatment in treating ALS.
In addition to Regenerative Treatments with Unique Access Medical, ALS patients also undergo Physiotherapy and Occupational Therapy Sessions to help individuals cope with the progression of the disease in their bodies.
