Amyotrophic lateral sclerosis 1

Treatment

Are there other symptom specific treatments for Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis?

Physical therapy, speech therapy, and occupational therapy can help improve quality of life of individuals with amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS). Gentle, low impact exercise such as walking, swimming, and stationary cycling can strengthen unaffected muscles and improve cardiovascular health. Nutritional support is also important for patients with ALS. Some patients can develop pain, depression, sleep disturbances, and constipation. Additional medication may be needed to treat these additional symptoms as they are seen.
