The Importance of Exercise

Because muscle has memory, which enables motor function to become improved and/or automatic the more it is practiced, it appears highly beneficial for patients to exercise in a moderate, controlled manner.

Benefits of Exercise

Not that long ago the ALS diagnosis carried with it the message, "Don't exercise because you'll wear out your muscles." We know today nothing could be further from the truth.

Keeping Communication Open

Being able to communicate with family, colleagues and friends helps maintain independence and positive feelings.

Strategies for Improving Speech

Rather than use exercises, which could further fatigue muscles, speech and language professional encourage developing strategies to help with swallowing.

Message Banking: Preserve Your Voice

Being able to communicate with family and friends in your own voice helps maintain a sense of self and identity. Message Banking is one way to achieve that goal.

Treatment Options

While there is not a cure today, there are many treatments that are designed to relieve symptoms, improve the quality of life and extend the lives of those with ALS.
