What ad­vance­ments are be­ing made in the treat­ment of ACC?

Wellness Update - - CLEVLAND CLINIC -

ACC doesn’t get worse and it doesn’t get bet­ter. Dr. Ten­ni­son says in­stead of treat­ment, the best hope for the fu­ture is de­tect­ing a propen­sity to de­vel­op­men­tal ab­nor­mal­i­ties and pre­dict­ing them and one day treat­ing them, be­fore they hap­pen. For now, the only thing to do is treat the symp­toms. And the symp­toms vary with ev­ery ACC af­fected in­di­vid­ual. Un­for­tu­nately, there are no ma­jor ad­vance­ments in cur­ing ACC how­ever; there have been ad­vance­ments in the treat­ment. Treat­ment in the case of ACC means help­ing the child max­i­mize his or her po­ten­tial for mo­tor skills. A child with ACC will work with a re­ha­bil­i­ta­tive team, which may in­clude phys­i­cal ther­apy, speech ther­apy, a neu­rol­o­gist and pe­di­a­tri­cian.
