Neurological disorders, including Alzheimer’s disease, stroke, Parkinson’s disease, brain tumors, and spinal disorders, have continued to rise over the years. Today, one in five Americans suffers from these diseases, and it appears that this trend will only continue as our population ages over the next three decades.
