Can We Talk? Alzheimer, Parkinson’s, ALS and MS
Alzheimer’s disease is more than just dementia. Alzheimer’s is a progressive neurological disorder. The continual damage to and death of brain cells associated with this disease eventually affect all neuro-muscular pathways in the body in that it shares company with many other progressive neurological diseases that worsen over time. Dozens of these disorders affect millions of people around the world, and each has a set of symptoms and treatments.
Treatment typically focuses on reducing or eliminating symptoms. The common denominator in all such conditions is damage, destruction, or death of brain cells, nerve cells, or cells of spinal cord pathways and their nerves. This deterioration causes interruption of signal transmissions to and from the brain to the rest of the body. Other progressive neurological disorders include ALS, Parkinson’s disease, multiple sclerosis, and muscular dystrophy.
Please join us as Dr. Michael Markowski of Emerald Care Physicians presents a special lecture on these progressive neurological disorders.
