REHABILITATION OF PATIENTS WITH MOTOR NEURON DISEASE

Joel A. DeLisa, M.D. (UMDNJ-New Jersey Medical School, Newark, New Jersey, USA)

 

Motor neuron diseases present a challenge to the field of medicine. Most start in the "prime of life", are progressive, devastating and intractable, finally culminating in death. These patients begin as independently functional individuals who can rapidly progress to a state of complete dependency, often with their mental facilities entirely intact. The etiology of MND is unknown and the only treatment is symptomatic. The disease not only affects the patient but often disrupts the family structure as well. Treatment applied early in the course of the disease can significantly enhance the quality of life by preventing disuse weakness, maintaining range of motion and facilitating transfers and ambulation. Adaptive equipment is useful to aid in self-care. Dysphagia and sialorrhea can be improved using supportive measures. Dysarthria or the loss of speech can be aided by multiple methods including electronic communications. Respiratory management including ventilatory support should be considered. One must give patients the opportunity to express their feelings, concerns and frustrations. Attention must be given to personal care on a 24-hour basis.
