Ataxia is a medical ailment instigated by loss of function in the cerebellum and and/or dysfunction of its pathways (brain stem, spinal cord). In maximum circumstances, the disease is instigated by hereditary mutation (hereditary ataxia) with spin cerebella ataxia (SCA) and Friedreich’s ataxia (FRDA) being the most common. The cerebellum acting as a coordination center in the brain explicates why patients spotted with ataxia slowly develop symptoms such as gait/walking shakiness, dysarthria (slurred speech) and folks affected might begin to fall without warning. The progression of the ailment might later result in fatigue, swallowing impairment, abridged coordination, tremors, decreased mental attentiveness and unpaired motor functions. Few conventional treatment choices are available for patients spotted with ataxia, which chiefly concentrate on alleviating the symptoms. None of them are essentially treating the loss of neurological function instigated by cell degeneration in the cerebellum, brain stem and/or spinal cord. Stem cells have the aptitude to regenerate incapacitated cells in the body, assisting to reduce/reverse the symptoms and permitting ataxia patients to improve.
Since so many years, we have been developing comprehensive stem cell treatment protocols for ataxia to overcome the restrictions of conventional therapies. In our protocols, stem cells are combined with specialized therapies for ataxia that not only concentrate on helping the patient to handle their symptoms, but also treat the direct reason of the symptoms by stimulating the healing of the brain/spinal cord injury. We believe that our comprehensive treatment methodology for ataxia gives our patients the superlative likelihoods of improvements, offering a better quality of life. Our stem cell treatment program can be applied to diverse kinds of ataxia including SCA1, SCA2, SCA3, SCA6, AOA1, Friedreich ataxia, ataxia instigated by brain injury and more.
The purpose of our stem cell treatment is to reinstate neurological function in the brain/spinal cord lesion region, thus, numerous categories of improvement are possible after our treatment and our previous patients have experienced the following:
- Improved balance and coordination
- Reduced fatigue
- Improved speech
- Diminished tremors
- Improved motor function
- Enhanced swallowing
- Lessened neuropathic pain
- Improved mental vigilance
It is imperative to remember that improvements experienced by patients diagnosed with hereditary ataxias might not be perpetual, as stem cell treatments do not at present have any influence on the hereditary origin of these particular categories of ataxia. In such circumstances, periodic treatments might be required to keep a stable condition. Lastly, as for any medical treatment, improvements cannot be promised.
