In the U.S., neurological health issues are on the rise. Eight in 10 people will have a spine injury at some time in their lives. Stroke is the leading cause of adult disability and head injury is the leading cause of death in young adults. Alzheimer’s Disease affects one in 10 people age 65 and older and is the sixth leading cause of death. Here in Louisiana, we have more than our fair share of neurological issues. Studies show that our state is ranked #50 in brain health.
