Neurological disorders are comprised of various diseases of the brain, the spine, and the connecting nerves. Today, we are aware of over 600 such diseases. Common conditions include Alzheimer’s and Parkinson’s diseases, both which are becoming epidemics. These diseases that fade the mind and limit mobility bring devastating consequences which take a heavy toll not only on the patient, but also on their families and the community.
It is not only adults who struggle with neurological disorders. Today, 1 in 59 children are diagnosed with Autism. This adds to a 300% increase in Autism cases since the year 2000. These neurological conditions share more than a noticeable increase rate. They are progressive, can only be diagnosed with signs and symptoms and there is no known way to prevent them.
At PRMEDICA, we are leading the fight against these conditions and have seen results. PRMEDICA’s Neurological Therapies combine the neuroprotective mechanisms of exosomes with the regenerative, anti-inflammatory and immunomodulatory properties of stem cells. Our neurological treatments are designed to address the neurological, physical and metabolic therapeutic challenges of these conditions.
Alzheimer's disease (AD) is a medical condition that affects an individual's cognitive functions. This disease progresses gradually and worsens over time. AD occurs when brain cells die. Cell death in the brain results in a significant decrease in nerve cell formation and connections, leading to memory loss. The development of tangles and plaque in the brain is what causes the loss of cells. Tangles, also known as Tau proteins, are located inside the brain's nerve cells. Plaque, also known as beta-amyloid proteins, is found between the nerve cells and the brain. If you or someone you love has this disease, it's crucial to seek professional Alzheimer’s treatment.
Autism spectrum disorder (ASD) is typically noticed in the first 3 years of life, characterized by a deficit in social behaviors and nonverbal interactions such as reduced eye contact, facial expression, and body gestures. Children also manifest with non-specific symptoms such as unusual sensory perception skills and experiences, motor clumsiness, and insomnia.
Associated symptoms include cognitive impairment, emotional indifference, hyperactivity, low tolerance to environmental stimulus, self-injury, and repetitive behaviors such as body rocking or hand flapping. Repetitive, stereotyped behaviors are often accompanied by seizures, gastrointestinal complaints, disturbed sleep, and other problems.
Parkinson´s disease is a relatively common neurodegenerative condition. Initial symptoms usually include tremors of one hand. As the disease progresses, other body parts may begin to show tremors; movement may become slow and difficult; balance and posture may be affected; and it may become difficult to speak without slurring. Automatic movements like blinking and natural arm swinging while walking may become difficult. Some individuals with advanced Parkinson´s develop cognitive problems and mood disorders. The disease is caused by the progressive loss of neurons in the brain that produce dopamine. Current treatments revolve around medication to restore the levels of dopamine in the brain, and while they can improve the symptoms they are not a cure for the disease.
