Experiencing Symptoms Of Ataxia In A 25 Month Old Infant With CP?
My son, 25 months of age, has cerebral palsy, which is characterized by “Exactly the same as ataxia Can BSA be cured
Good morning, thanks for asking at HealthReplies.com. Cerebral palsy (CP) or cerebral palsy is a neurological disorder that causes disruption of coordination and body movements. CP is one of the diseases that most plays a role in causing chronic paralysis in children. The severity of this disease varies in each sufferer, ranging from mild, moderate, to severe. This difference will begin to be seen during the first 3 years of life and can cause symptoms in the form of:
Uncontrollable movements or tremors
Muscles that are stiff or very weak
Trouble making the right moves
Vision and hearing problems
And actually it can still vary depending on the part of the brain that is affected. The causes of this condition range from infection of the mother during pregnancy, infection of the baby's brain after birth, premature birth, breech birth, twins, lack of oxygen in the baby, to low baby weight and genetic changes.
While ataxia is a coordination disorder of nerves and muscles that affects movement, speech, and body balance. In people with ataxia, there can also be involuntary body movements. Ataxia can occur to anyone who has nerve damage to the brain and of course one of them is a person with CP.
Regarding whether it can be cured or not, until now CP still cannot be cured. But the good news is that technological advances are now able to reduce most of the symptoms, can use drugs, special therapy, as well as surgery, which options vary depending on the disease. In conditions of ataxia, there may be more emphasis on drugs and therapy.
Our advice, discuss your child's problem again with a neurologist to do a plan regarding what treatments can be done with your child's current age. You don't need to worry and stress, because the condition of CP treatment is now different from decades ago and the life expectancy of people with CP is much better. All you need to do is keep giving him the best nutrition and support him in all his activities. We wish you and your family good health.
That's all, hope it helps.
