Amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS), commonly known as Lou Gehrig’s disease, is a rare neurological disease that affects motor neurons—ALS Disorder majorly affects the nerve cells in the brain and spinal cord that control voluntary muscle movements. Voluntary muscles can be defined as movements like walking and talking. ALS is a progressive disorder and the symptoms may get worse over time. With the progression of ALS these cells degenerate and die. The muscles stop receiving signal, and the brain can no longer control voluntary movement. Over time, the muscles weaken and degenerate.

Symptoms of ALS

ALS causes muscle weakness in all cases. During the Initial stages, signs and symptoms may be barely noticeable. But this may not be the first indication of the condition.

 They become more noticeable over time, and the progression varies from person to person.

Common symptoms include:

  • difficulty with daily activities like walking
  • increased “unsteadiness”
  • weakness in the feet, hands, legs, and ankles
  • cramping and twitching in the arms, shoulders, or tongue
  • difficulty in maintaining good posture like holding the head up
  • changes in thinking or loss of memory
  • slurred speech and difficulty with voice projection
  • pain
  • Limb fatigue
  • problems with saliva and mucus
  • difficulty breathing and swallowing, in the later stages

Stem Cell Therapy for ALS

Stem Cell Therapy is considered the most effective and promising approach towards the Treatment of ALS. With the help of Stem cell therapy, the progression of ALS disease can be slowed down and regressed, and even stopped completely. The success rate of the treatment is proportional to the patient’s age, the duration of the disease and the patient’s condition. As a result of the improvement in the muscles, the patient’s quality of life increases significantly. Stem cells have the ability to turn into any other cell specifically neurons, i.e. nerve cells when they come in contact with dying nerve cells. At the same time, the stem cells have the ability to turn into the muscle cells also. Therefore, they provide treatment for the weakened muscles. Stem Cells Therapy has shown best results with ALS Patients when administered at the early stage of the disease. Upon Treatment patients show decreased in weakness in limbs, increase in their appetite, improved psychological state, decreased spasticity intensity, enhancement in mobility, better strength in feet, hand muscles and improvement in swallowing and speech. As a result of the improvement in the muscles, the patient’s quality of life increases significantly.
