Motor Neurone Disease (MND)

is a progressive neurodegenerative disease that attacks the motor neurones in the brain and spinal cord.

This leads to weakness and wasting of muscles, causing increasing loss of mobility in the limbs, and difficulties with speech, swallowing and breathing.

However, not all symptoms necessarily happen to everyone and it is unlikely they will all develop at the same time, or in any specific order. Although there is currently no cure for MND, symptoms can be managed to help you achieve the best possible quality of life.

There are three stages of MND: initial stage, advanced stage and the end stage which develop with different pace. With your neuro-physio you will be able to adjust the therapy to your needs and your goals.
