Ataxia

Hi. Since my last relapse which started about 3 months ago, I’ve made a steady improvement in my symptoms. I am still left with ataxia (impaired co-ordination & tremors). From a rehab exercise viewpoint, which exercises will work to improve the co-ordination?

Thanks

have you ever been seen by a neurological physiotherapist?

if not get a referral straight away.

by their job title you can see that they are experts in exercise and nerves.

do you go to a ms therapy centre?

they have neuro physios there and the cost is subsidised, working out at £10 per session.

there is a massive waiting list for the NHS ones.

i think the idea is to retrain the neural pathways to avoid damaged parts.

good luck omar.

​bad relapses take quite some time to recover from
