RE: I am suffering with spinal muscular atrophy. Is there any cure?
Spinal Muscular atrophy (SMA) occurs due to degeneration of motor neurons that results into muscular atrophy and weakness. Therefore, main modality of treatment depends upon prevention and management of the effect of chronic motor unit loss. Common options could be power wheelchairs,ventilators and modified access to computers to perform daily activities. In addition, your treating doctor may suggest certain medications to prevent further symptoms and degeneration. Hope this helps.
