Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis (ALS) or Lou Gehrig’s disease is a progressive neurodegenerative disease that affects upper and lower motor neurons that are in charge of allowing muscles to work. A team multidisciplinary approach with ongoing assessment is best practice.
Here at Neuro Logic, we will evaluate and provide care based on the current functioning status and provide interventions that are most appropriate. Individuals may benefit from referrals to other health care professionals to assist with care such as respiratory therapists, occupational therapists, speech language pathologists, wheelchair evaluations, or bracing. We will provide family training and home modification recommendations. Ryan can help facilitate assistance and communication with the Colorado Chapter of the ALS Association as he worked closely with them in an ALS multidisciplinary clinic.
