  • Modifications needed for difficulty experienced in chewing/swallowing and digestive issues like constipation.
  • Managing side effects of medications.
  • Managing co existing complications and abnormal blood reports.
  • Adequate protein and supplements that boost and preserve nerve function/muscle strength.

Exercise

Neurological conditions can cause motor deficits. An exercise program can help in maintaining muscle strength, prevents weight gain and promotes general fitness. A specialised team will prescribe safe, simple, exercises after an evaluation.
