Ataxia Physiotherapy in Oxford

Ataxia Treatment at Oxhab

What is Atatxia?

Ataxia is a neurological condition affecting the central nervous system, and it commonly affects a structure of the brain called the cerebellum. There are different forms of ataxia. Ataxic movements can occur as a result of another neurological condition, such as multiple sclerosis or from a brain injury. Ataxia can present as un-coordinated movement and a reduction in balance, which can commonly affect all parts of the body including the arms and legs. Ataxia can cause a disturbance in function and cause difficulty with tasks such as balance, walking and fine control of the hands.
