What is MND


What is Motor Neurone Disease?

Motor Neurone Disease (MND) is a progressive neurological condition that attacks the motor neurones (nerves). It is the name given to a group of diseases in which the nerve cells (neurones) controlling the muscles that enable us to move, speak, swallow and breathe undergo degeneration and die. The cause of MND is unknown and not all symptoms of the disease necessarily happen to everyone with the patterns of weakness varying from person to person.

MND is diagnosed in people of all ages of men and women. Currently there is no cure, however symptoms can be managed to help the person achieve the best possible quality of life.
