Motor neurone disease is an illness which affects the nerves that control the muscles of the body. A diagnosis of MND can be very frightening, but reliable information can ease the fear and shock. Although a cure is still awaited, much can be done to enable life to be lived to the full. Dr David Oliver spells out what the disease is, what the doctors will do, how to cope with the difficulties, what the future holds, and the role of carers and support agencies. He shows how to treat not just the physical effects but also the emotional ones for the whole family.
