Healthcare providers can make a big difference in SMA

Spinal Muscular Atrophy (“SMA”) is a genetic, progressive neurodegenerative disease characterized by weakness of the skeletal and respiratory muscles. It is the number one genetic cause of death for infants.

The resources on this website are helpful to healthcare providers who are just learning about SMA and/or providing care to people with SMA. 

The considerations start from prevention and early diagnosis of SMA. To respiratory care to identify methods to maintain respiratory health, rehabilitative care and learn strategies to maintain motor function and mobility, even the therapeutic importance of maintaining optimal nutrition in patients with SMA.

Many aspects of care have dramatically improved including the use of disease-modifying drug therapies. Regardless if there is access to such treatments or not, advancements and a more proactive approach in medical care helps to improve life expectancy and quality of life in all types of SMA.
