Motor neuron disease, also known as neurodegeneration, this disease is clinically known as amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS), which causes muscle weakness and is often accompanied by significant wasting.

I have a friend with it. It makes him very tired, and restricts his movement. It is mostly stress-related, but is also compounded by him coping with the illness though various addictions which keep him unhealthy. I think that dealing with stress in healthy ways, and getting rid of harmful addictions would probably make a huge difference.

Motor neuron disease is a neurodegenerative disease, the cause of which is not clear, mainly due to selective invasion of upper and lower motor neurons. Symptoms include muscle atrophy and beating, vertebral tract signs, etc. The patients with this disease are mainly middle-aged and elderly men. Because it is a progressive disease, the average course of the disease is about 3 to 5 years, and the slow course of the disease can reach more than 10 years.

When exercising with motor neuron disease, high-intensity exercise is not recommended. Moderate exercise is necessary, because excessive exercise will increase the burden on the patient’s nerve cells and may also cause cell death faster. You can do some rehabilitation exercises. , Such as taking a walk after a meal, short-distance swimming, etc., relatively gentle exercise. Do not do activities such as lifting dumbbells or climbing stairs.
