Treatment of spinal muscular atrophy by Western medicine
Specific treatment for spinal muscular atrophy will be determined by your child's physician based on:
  • your child's age, overall health, and medical history
  • the extent of the condition
  • the type of spinal muscular atrophy
  • your child's tolerance for specific medications, procedures, or therapies
  • expectations for the course of the condition
  • your opinion or preference

There is no cure for spinal muscular atrophy. The key to medically managing spinal muscular atrophy is through early detection.

The goal of treatment is to prevent respiratory problems and provide adequate nutritional care to the child since the swallowing and breathing muscles can be affected by this condition.

The extent of the problem is dependent on the severity of the condition and the presence of other problems that could affect the child. In severe cases, a breathing machine may be required to help the child breathe easier.

The healthcare team educates the family after hospitalization on how to best care for their child at home and outlines specific clinical problems that require immediate medical attention by his/her physician. A child with spinal muscular atrophy requires frequent medical evaluations throughout his/her lifespan.

We can't make the healthy society in our country until we will not start to create the awareness among the children from their childhood. So we should raise the good points you did.
