Decreased Ability To Walk At Age 23 After Experiencing A Collision?
Good evening, I want to ask about the symptoms experienced by my friend, a 23-year-old woman … u0026plusmn; the past 1-2 years my friend has decreased the ability to walk which is characterized by his slow walking movements, often falling without any reason made him stumble, and had difficulty going down the stairs so he had to slowly and have to hold on to the banister … About 1-2 years ago my friend had a motorcycle accident and his head hit the asphalt … Is the decline in the ability to walk he could be caused by the impact or something else? If so, what should be the proper handling? Thank you
The emergence of walking disorders can indeed be caused by head / brain injuries because in the brain there are various organs that regulate balance such as the cerebellum (cerebellum) and the somatosensory cortex (the part of the brain that regulates sensory function). However, this does not mean that this must be caused by head trauma. Here are some things that can cause walking disorders:
Walking disorders due to disorders of the muscles, joints or bones Electrolyte disorders, for example hypokalemia Disorders of the balance organ (vestibular) Due to other medical conditions such as myasthenia gravis, guillain barre syndrome Related to these complaints I strongly recommend that your friend check himself with a neurologist complained and in order to get appropriate treatment. The examinations that may be carried out by neurologists are medical interviews related to complaints, physical examinations and supporting examinations such as blood tests, EMG (electromielography), CT-Scan or MRI.
Do the examination if it is recommended by the doctor because the examination is very important to help the doctor ascertain the cause of your friend's complaints. If indeed the complaint is caused by a brain disorder, the doctor can recommend physiotherapy procedures, consumption of drugs to help brain function such as piracetam.
