Can Abnormalities In Post-operative Motion Function Be Corrected?
I was diagnosed with Chiari Malformation and had surgery a month ago. Before the hand and finger ops “I was very weak, it was difficult to write.” Will this condition improve? Are there vitamins or foods that can improve this condition? Thank you in advance
Hi Rehna! Thank you for asking at HealthReplies.com.
Chiari malformation is a condition where brain tissue spreads to the region of the spinal cord. This occurs when the skull is smaller than normal or there is a deformity, so that the brain is depressed downward. Surgery is done so that the disorder is not getting worse and pressure on the brain can be reduced, so that the flow of brain fluid can run normally again. Surgery will reduce symptoms in most patients. However, if chiari malformation has caused nerve injury to the spinal cord, the damage cannot be reversed. This means that your condition can improve as long as the nerves in your spinal cord have not yet been affected. After surgery, you need regular control to the doctor, including CT scan or MRI re-examination to monitor progress after surgery.
That's all information from me. I hope this helps.
