Welcome to the ALS Channel
ALS (amyotrophic lateral sclerosis) is an incurable condition that can cause symptoms such as muscle weakness, atrophy of muscles, and spasticity, among other things. While the exact cause of this disease is unknown, researchers are looking at possibilities such as genetics, autoimmune responses, and environment. Diagnosing this condition isn't always easy – several other illnesses resemble ALS.
