What is motor neurone disease (MND)?
Motor neurone disease (MND), is a relatively uncommon progressive neurological condition (PNC), which affects the brain and nerves. The condition develops when messages from the nerves (motor neurones) in the brain and spinal cord stop reaching the muscles, which causes them to become weak, stiff and slowly waste away.
MND is most commonly diagnosed in individuals who are over the age of 50, although it can affect adults at any age and stage in life. MND is an irreversible, progressive, and life-limiting illness, which currently has no cure. However, there are several MND treatments which can help to manage symptoms and reduce the impact that this condition has on your day-to-day life.
