Tip of the Week

Physical therapy is an essential part of supportive therapy for ALS sufferers. Due to increasing muscle weakness, physical therapy should begin as soon as a diagnosis of ALS is reached. There are several exercises, which can help with muscle strength and movement. A physical therapist can also recommend exercises and stretching techniques to decrease muscle cramps and stiffness. This form of supportive therapy is also consulted when braces or orthotics are needed for stability.
