1 There are a lot of diseases and disorders that can cause the degeneration and subsequent death of neurons in our nervous system. Dementias and neuromuscular diseases are usually the most known and frequent. Below we can see some examples of some of the most common neurodegenerative diseases and Neurodegenerative Disease Treatment. 1. Alzheimer's disease One of the most well-known neurodegenerative diseases is Alzheimer's disease, perhaps the most prototypical and prevalent problem of this type. This disease, which starts in the temporoparietal lobes and subsequently spreads throughout the brain, does not have a clear known cause. It generates a dementia characterized by the progressive loss of mental faculties, with memory being one of the most affected elements and the appearance of the aphaso-apraxoagnosic syndrome in which the speech, sequencing and carrying out of complex movements and recognition skills are lots of stimuli like faces. 2. Parkinson's disease Parkinson's is another of the most well-known and frequent neurodegenerative diseases. In it there is a progressive degeneration of the neurons of the substantia nigra and the nigrostriate system, affecting the production and use of dopamine in said pathway. The most recognizable symptoms are those of the motor type, with slowing down, gait alterations and perhaps the most well-known symptom: parkinsonian tremors in rest situations. It can end up generating a dementia, in which in addition to the above symptoms can be observed mutism, loss of facial expression, mental slowness, memory alterations and other alterations. So get in touch with doctor for Parkinson's Disease Cure. 3. Multiple Sclerosis Chronic and currently incurable disease generated by the progressive demyelination of the nervous system due to the reaction of the immune system against the myelin that lines the neurons. It passes in the form of outbreaks between which there may be a certain level of recovery, as the body tries to repair the loss of myelin (although the new one will be less resistant and effective). Fatigue, muscle weakness, lack of coordination, visual problems and

2 pain are some of the problems it causes, usually progressing in intensity over time. It is not considered deadly and has no great effect on life expectancy. Springfield Chronic Pain Treatment is must on time. 4. Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis Amyotrophic lateral sclerosis is one of the most frequent neuromuscular disorders, being one of the neurodegenerative diseases linked to the alteration and death of motor neurons. As the neurodegeneration progresses, the musculature will atrophy until its voluntary movement becomes impossible. Over time it can affect the respiratory musculature, being one of the causes that the life expectancy of those who suffer it is reduced to a great extent so Neurodegenerative Disease Treatment Springfield is must. 5. Huntington's Korea The disease known as Huntington's chorea is one of the most well-known neurodegenerative diseases of genetic origin. Hereditary disease transmitted in an autosomal dominant manner, is characterized by the presence of motor alterations, such as choreas or movements generated by the involuntary contraction of muscles, its displacement being somewhat similar to a dance. In addition to motor symptoms, as the disease progresses, alterations appear in executive functions, memory, speech and even personality.
