hello sir, since iam patient of polio,iam paralyzed from my whole left lower limb.I developed muscle atrophy since my childhood.I developed polio at age of 3years according to my parents. My parents got me treated everywhere but no considerable response achieved. I take support of my left arm and keep my hand on slightly above knee and then i walk. My whole is limb is paralyzed and atrophied from hip,. my limb is short so i feel difficulty in walking. I have also gone through BIONICS. Iam also MBBS,RMP doctor did my house job just in 2012 and presently working as a medical officer in maldives.According to medical science once nerves damaged can not be regenerated. So,. if is there any medical or anyother therapy available for polio,. kindly tell me so that i may i undergo that therapy and lead a life without inferority complex. iam doctor Leela Ram from Pakistan.

Hi Anonymous,

Thank you for your question and I am sorry that you are having difficulties with your diagnosis of polio. There is new stem cell therapy that is new in regard to polio and you may want to read additional information here http://www.empowher.com/poliomyelitis/content/stem-cell-therapy-used-cure-polio.

Otherwise, the treatments that are available in the US regaring Polio can be found here http://www.empowher.com/media/reference/post-polio-syndrome.

I hope this helps and good luck.
