MOTOR NEURONE DISEASE (MND)

Motor Neurone Disease (MND) is the name given to a group of progressive diseases which affect the nerve cells, called neurones. These control the muscles of the body enabling us to move, speak, breathe and swallow by carrying messages from the brain.

Patterns of weakness vary from person to person and MND can lead to a number of symptoms including:

  • Muscle spasm (spasticity)

  • Muscle weakness

  • Decreased sensation

  • Problems with breathing

  • Difficulties with mobility & other activities

  • Difficulties with balance

  • Problems with speech, swallow & concentration

  • Pain

  • Fatigue

Our experienced team of clinicians are knowledgeable, sensitive and responsive to your needs by work closely with you, your family and your support network. Our support involves addressing your functional difficulties which MND brings, help you manage problematic symptoms and work with you to enable you to do the things you want to do in everyday life.

We can help with the following:

  • Analysing problematic activities and maximising participation to help you achieve your everyday goals

  • Responding to wheelchair and seating needs making sure the correct mobility devices are received to help you move around comfortably and access the community

  • Individualised assessments and treatment for pain, weakened muscles and discomfort

  • Advice and education to carers on safe manual handling

  • Chest clearance and breathing exercises

  • Provision of equipment and splints where appropriate

  • Identification of potential housing needs and assistance with the next steps

  • Connect you with the appropriate services to help you get what you need
