In the neurological evaluation of weakness, we distinguish between upper motor neuron

weakness, and lower motor neuron weakness.

The anterior horn cells are somatotopically organized in the spinal cord.

Clinically characterized by selective involvement of muscles.
Currently there is no cure for MND, however there are medicines available to slow down the progress of the disease and manage your symptoms.
Talk to your GP before starting any complementary therapy to make sure that it isn’t harmful and is compatible with any other medicines you’re taking.
i hope i have answered your query.
take care
