SMA Awareness

HAPPY HUMP DAY!  TIme to cruise into the latter part of the week!

We are in a new month and therefore having a host of new health awareness observances.  We would like to highlight Spinal Muscular Atrophy (SMA) Awareness Month.  Like all other awareness efforts, they are on-going year round.  But August is the time to spotlight these efforts.  SMA is a genetic disorder that affects voluntary muscle movement.  PTs and OTs have a role in the treatment/maintenance of this disease.  SLPs play a role if there are swallowing issues due to weakness in the mouth and throat muscles.  For more specific info on this disease go to http://www.curesma.org/.  Lets continue to educate ourselves so that we can educate others.
