Neurological Disorder Stats

Did you know that up to one billion people, almost one in every six of the world’s entire population, suffer from a neurological disorder? Neurological disorders can include Alzheimer’s disease, Parkinson’s disease, Multiple Sclerosis, epilepsy, migraines, brain injuries, neuroinfections and strokes. As of 2011, nearly 100 million Americans were affected by at least one type of neurological disorder. estimates around 20 million Americans will experience some form of neuropathy, and another 16% of United States households have someone with neurological impairment. They also found that a large majority, about 90%, of the population will suffer from a migraine at some point in their lives. This means that you, and likely someone you know, has the potential of suffering from a neurological disorder at some point in your lifetime — if you haven’t already experienced one.
