Movement and joints

The degeneration of upper motor (UMN) and lower motor (LMN) neurons, leads to progressive weakness of bulbar, limb, thoracic and abdominal muscles (Andersen and others 2007) causing muscle weakness, stiffness and immobility.

Assessment and continuing review by physiotherapist and occupational therapist for:

  • management of exercise, positioning and pain
  • prescription of appropriate equipment and aids to assist independence, mobility and comfort (MND Australia 2014)
