What is Ataxia?
“Ataxia. It’s like Multiple Sclerosis ganged up with Parkinson’s and played a dirty trick on Cerebral Palsy.” This is a headline on the poster from Awareness Day UK, which reflects the complications of the disease. Although the disease is a rare condition, those inflicted with it as well as their families and loved ones, suffer unimaginable pain.
Ataxia is a rare group of neurological condition attacking the brain and has serious effects on the patients’ balance, coordination, and speech. There are different types of Ataxia and it may affect all groups of people in different age range and currently has no cure. The disease also comes with other debilitating conditions including diabetes and heart diseases.
Currently, specific treatments are provided to patients to help relieve their symptoms and improve their well-being. Doctors recommend Speech therapy, Physical Therapy, and Occupational Therapy to help patients carry out their day- to- day chores.
Spreading Awareness of Ataxia
International Ataxia Awareness Day (IAAD) is celebrated every year on 25th September, where everyone can help raise awareness of the disease. The more people are aware of Ataxia, the more research may be invested to discover a treatment for this incurable disease. According to Awareness Day UK, only ten percent of the population in the United Kingdom knows this disease. However, there are many ways to spread awareness of this disease, including speaking in local communities, schools, and society groups. The IAAD also helps to raise funds for the National Ataxia Foundation (NAF) research studies and clinical trials to help patients get treatment for this condition.
For those concerned with the disease or would like to help, there are simple ways to help spread the word on Ataxia. You can download a poster from Awareness Day UK here and ask permission to put them up on your workplace, school, hospitals, or home. There are also handy flyers and a booklet with an outline of the condition and details of the disease which you can download and pass them onto your community.
