Can Autism Recover After Physiotherapy?
I was once diagnosed with autism symptoms at 5 years, but managed to recover thanks to physiotherapy, and I am now 19 years old. The question is, do people who recover from autism still have traces of autism, such as unstable emotions, for example?
Hello. Thank you for the question submitted to HealthReplies.com. We can understand the concern you feel.
Autism (autistic disorder) is a developmental disorder that is complex and severe, encompassing the fields of communication, social interaction, language, behavior, and cognition. Autism can occur to anyone without racial, ethnic, social, economic and educational differences. The incidence rate tends to be more in men. Symptoms of autism can begin to appear since a baby, or in children who actually have developed relatively normal but then before the age of 3 years the development becomes stopped or withdrawn, then symptoms of autism appear. The symptoms of autism include problems with:
Communication (delays in the development of speech, difficulty in starting or maintaining conversations with others, babbling, not understanding the conversation of others)
Social interaction (nonverbal behavioral behavior in the form of not responding when called, do not want to make eye contact, facial expressions and rigid posture, no desire to share pleasure or make emotional and social relationships with others)
Behavior (indifferent to the environment, stereotypic interests such as being attracted to moving or rotating objects, aggressive behavior, stereotypic and repetitive motor behavior such as pacing or screaming)
Emotions (uncontrollable emotions, laughter, crying, or anger without cause)
Sensory (yelling or kissing objects without chewing, sensitive to certain touches, not like clothes with a rough texture)
Basically, until now there has been no drug that really can completely eliminate autism spectrum disorders. However, there are therapeutic methods to help control the symptoms of autism. The aim of the treatment is to reduce and change undesirable behavior, as well as increase the ability to learn languages, communicate, and help yourself. The therapy given is in the form of drugs combined with behavioral therapy, occupational therapy, speech therapy, and other therapeutic modalities as needed (for example: group therapy, sensory integration therapy, etc.)
If you have been diagnosed with autism and are currently experiencing symptoms of autism related to emotions, you are advised to consult a psychiatric specialist. Through history taking, physical examination, and possibly supporting examinations (if necessary), the doctor will evaluate your condition and can provide the necessary treatment.
As a suggestion, you are advised to share your complaints with people you trust can support therapy for handling your problem. To enrich insight, you can read articles about autism. Thus information from us. Hopefully always healthy. May be useful.
