November is National Alzheimer’s Disease Awareness Month

Alzheimer’s has become a growing concern as human life expectancy continues to increase; every day thousands of individuals deal with the onset of the disease. Alzheimer’s will cause the brain to tangle itself up with fibrous proteins that choke off portions of brain matter. Over time, the neurons in our brain lose the ability to communicate with each other and will die as a result. Once the damage reaches the hippocampus, individuals will begin to lose memories and the ability to learn, thus impairing many activities of daily living (ADLs). Eventually, the loss of motor function, memory and decision making skills will rob a person of their ability to care for themselves. IM’s exercises use complex, precisely timed movements that are mixed with focused attention, cognitive processing and decision making to activate and synchronize the timing in the brain. Not only does IM therapy help prevent the progression of Alzheimer’s, but it can help to restore previously lost functions.
