Spino Cerebellar Ataxia SCA6

Posted on July 27, 2012. Filed under: Cerebellar ataxia | Tags: , , |

Rolynn returned week six with her aunt Mia on the left, Rolynn in the middle and her mother Arlene on the right. They came in and I began the evaluation to  determine if I could help Rolynn’s Aunt and mother. Roynn had not worn her vest in three days. When I tested her she could lie down without any dizziness without the vest and NO downbeat nystagmus. In addition her heel to shin was as good as it ever had been even with the vest on…..and when I retested her she had gained a lot of stability. She no longer rotated or lost her balance backwards like she had. I was able to take one pound out of her vest. She still has 3/4 pounds. If you are joining please read the two posts prior as I have described all of the medical terms that I am speaking about today.If you  want to know what the vests look like then take a look at the ones above. Motion Therapeutics has strived to make the vests look like normal clothes. I think they have.

Stayed Tuned. We will discuss Arelene in the next day or so.
