Memory impairment

Chiropractic CHIROfamily

What is memory impairment?

Everyone forgets things at times.

Some degree of memory problems, as well as a modest decline in other thinking skills, is a fairly common part of aging. There’s a difference, however, between normal changes in memory and memory loss associated with Alzheimer’s disease and related disorders. And some memory problems are the result of treatable conditions.

Normal age-related memory loss doesn’t prevent you from living a full, productive life. For example, you might occasionally forget a person’s name, but recall it later in the day. You might misplace your glasses sometimes. Or maybe you need to make lists more often than in the past to remember appointments or tasks.

These changes in memory are generally manageable and don’t disrupt your ability to work, live independently or maintain a social life.

The word “dementia” is an umbrella term used to describe a set of symptoms, including impairment in memory, reasoning, judgment, language and other thinking skills. Dementia usually begins gradually, worsens over time and impairs a person’s abilities in work, social interactions and relationships.

Often, memory loss that disrupts your life is one of the first or more-recognizable signs of dementia. Other early signs might include:

Asking the same questions repeatedly

Forgetting common words when speaking

Mixing words up — saying “bed” instead of “table,” for example

Taking longer to complete familiar tasks, such as following a recipe

Misplacing items in inappropriate places, such as putting a wallet in a kitchen drawer

Getting lost while walking or driving in a familiar area

Having changes in mood or behavior for no apparent reason

Diseases that cause progressive damage to the brain include:

Alzheimer’s disease, the most common cause of dementia

Vascular dementia

Frontotemporal dementia

Lewy body dementia
