What is "ataxia"?

Ataxia is a condition that affects coordination and balance, making movements unsteady and shaky. It can result from damage to the brain, spinal cord, or nerves that control movement. Ataxia can cause difficulties with walking, speaking, and doing precise movements like writing or buttoning clothes. It may also lead to tremors and muscle stiffness. Treatment for ataxia depends on the underlying cause and may include physical therapy to improve balance and coordination, medications to manage symptoms such as tremors or muscle stiffness, and lifestyle changes to reduce the risk of falls and injuries.
