Can children recover from brain atrophy?

  Some parents are diagnosed or considered as brain atrophy because of their children’s mental retardation and go to the neurology or rehabilitation department. Therefore, many questions have been raised. For example, what is brain atrophy, how does it happen, whether it can be recovered, and so on. Here are the questions most frequently asked by parents of children in the outpatient clinic to answer you one by one.
  Q: What is brain atrophy
  brain atrophy refers to all causes organic disease brain tissue, a phenomenon atrophy occurs. Clinical manifestations are mainly dementia, mental retardation, personality changes, memory and behavior disorders.
  Q: What are the hazards of brain atrophy
  brain atrophy not only lead to intellectual impairment, but also so that children lose self instinct life. Affect the quality of life, severe cases can be life-threatening.
  Q: Brain atrophy is a common cause and what risk factors
  of brain atrophy is caused by many factors. Such as genetics, brain diseases, long-term epilepsy, malnutrition, thyroid dysfunction, gas poisoning, hypoxia, etc., can cause the destruction of brain parenchyma and the atrophy, deformation, and disappearance of nerve cells. The main pathogenic factors are chronic cerebral ischemia and hypoxia, which affect the morphology and function of brain cells and cause brain atrophy.
  Q: What routine examination of brain atrophy need to do, how to find and diagnose
  the diagnosis of brain atrophy need to do neurological radiology, CT, MRI, cerebral angiography. General neuroimaging examination can find that the volume of brain tissue is reduced and the ventricle is enlarged, combined with clinical manifestations, etc., can be diagnosed.
  Q: rehabilitation of brain atrophy which
  first of all is to remove the cause, reduce the incidence of brain atrophy produced with a variety of symptoms and complications, to maintain brain function and status of the remaining improve quality of life.
  Rehabilitation therapy has certain significance for children with brain atrophy, especially when cognitive and motor dysfunctions appear, rehabilitation therapy has important value for functional recovery. The goal of rehabilitation is to maximize the recovery of motor, cognitive, language functions and self-care abilities in order to improve the quality of life.
  1. Treatment of cognitive impairment. The current cognitive rehabilitation methods for brain atrophy mainly include occupational therapy, computer-assisted and virtual cognitive rehabilitation, electromagnetic stimulation, etc. Specifically, a flexible method should be adopted according to the situation of the child, and at the same time, the beneficial environmental factors around the child should be used to give the child a benign stimulation to promote the improvement of their cognitive function. Cognitive function training, such as memory training, attention training, thinking training, etc., is training to improve intelligence and should run through the whole process of treatment.
  2. Treatment of behavioral disorders. The purpose of the treatment of behavioral disorders is to try to eliminate abnormal behaviors and promote their pro-social behaviors. Treatment methods include creating an environment suitable for behavioral therapy, drugs, behavioral therapy, etc.
  Children should be treated as soon as possible. Early treatment should be within 6 months after the appearance of various dysfunctions. This is the best time for treatment to recover. Children who start treatment only 6 months after the onset of illness will have a lower recovery rate and speed than those treated earlier.
  Q: brain atrophy daily care what
  lifestyle adjustments, improved nutrition structure, correct bad habits. Reasonable use of the brain, the use of brain function to advance and retreat, active rehabilitation treatment, to stimulate the continuous generation of excitement points in the cerebral cortex, and slow down the process of brain function decline. Participate in physical exercises suitable for children to ensure adequate sleep. Regular inspections, early detection, early diagnosis, and early treatment, delay and control the development of the disease as early as possible.
