ALS, amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis, is a neuromuscular disease that attacks motor neurons causing progressive paralysis that makes common/simple movements difficult.
Once diagnosed, patients require multispecialty, compassionate treatment to help maintain their activities of daily living and supporting the needs of those caring for them.
Colorado Springs Neurological Associates has partnered with Encompass Health Rehabilitation Hospital of Colorado Springs to offer a multi-disciplinary ALS clinic.
Our clinic involves evaluations with neurology, physical therapy, occupational therapy, speech therapy, nutrition, and respiratory therapy on a quarterly basis.
We hope to help come up with solutions that many people face with ALS and improve on their quality of life.
