Sensory Ataxia Treatment

Ataxia is a condition that occurs due to lack of muscle coordination. This condition impairs speech, eye movements, walking straight, swallowing, walking, handpicking objects and other voluntary actions performed by an individual. Sensory ataxia defines a condition caused by the loss of sensory ability to control body movements. The person with sensory ataxia may lose the sense of coordination of different parts of the body in relation to each other. During the condition, there is a loss of proper perception, coordination and lack of information input from vision and other senses. The person loses motor control and this poor coordination results in symptoms including improper body balance which gets worse in the dark or in poor light conditions.
