In June 2014, Omar, a 35-year-old male, was admitted to Beijing Puhua International Hospital due to decreased vision for the previous 8 years and unsteady gait with slurred speech for the previous 3 years. He was diagnosed with hereditary cerebellar ataxia.

Medical Condition before Treatment for Hereditary Cerebellar Ataxia

Omar, who had previously done Kung Fu for almost 10 years, was unable to stand up because of this heredity ataxia, which robbed him of normal balance and motility. Dysarthria and decreased vision were also serious problems for him.

Hospital treatment with Stem Cell Therapy for Hereditary Ataxia: 

After admission for hereditary ataxia, several medical protocols were applied, including: stem cell therapy, improving cerebral blood circulation and nutrition, combined with traditional Chinese medicine and rehabilitation training.

Physical condition pre-discharge:  

The patient’s vision was improved, as was rotation movement of both hands. Finger-nose test was more stable. The patient was able to much better maintain his balance on balance plate training, while experience less falling and/or unsteadiness. The patient was able to complete single leg balance training with little assistance. Bilateral heel-knee-tibia test became more stable. His gait was improved, and he began to walk much better by himself. The patient’s condition was much better prior to discharge. Omar’s condition will likely continue to improve over the next several months.
