Sean M. Healey & AMG Center for ALS
Managing the symptoms associated with ALS can be crucial to the quality of life of people with ALS. The ALS Multidisciplinary Clinic in the Healey Center for ALS at Mass General provides people with ALS, or Lou Gehrig's disease, individualized care plans for disease and symptom management.
Symptom management is a major component of the care of ALS. Identifying and addressing problematic symptoms can minimize their effects on a person’s function, health, and quality of life. There are many resources and technologies that can allow people with ALS to live their lives more fully. Below we have written some guidelines for caring for the symptoms associated with ALS. Please use these resources as a starting point for conversations with your clinician.
