Motor Neurone Disease: Answers at your FingertipsAuthors: Dr Frank Clifford Rose, Dr Stuart Neilson
Motor Neurone Disease (MND) is a progressive disorder of the nervous system. Its effects on the body are so severe that it eventually changes the lives of those affected and hence those of their families, friends and work colleagues.
Motor Neurone Disease: Answers at your Fingertips is packed full of sensible advice. The expert authors address the physical and emotional upheaval that MND brings on, discussing its impact on the person with MND and on whole family, offering positive help and advice. The book provides up-to-date and medically accurate information on a whole range of topics. These include diagnosis and treatment and issues arising from adapting to life with MND, such as mobility, feelings and sexual relationships.
