How is Transverse Myelitis treated?
Since so little is currently known about Transverse Myelitis, no effective cure exists for individuals with the condition. Each case of TM is unique and varies widely from person to person, making standard treatment procedures more complicated. There is a growing body of evidence that suggests TM may occur as a complication from certain vaccines.
Most treatments begin by attempting to manage and alleviate symptoms. Corticosteroid therapy is often prescribed during the first few weeks of illness to decrease inflammation, and may include such medications as methylprednisone or dexamethasone. General analgesia is usually given for pain, and bed rest is often recommended during the initial days and weeks after the onset of this disorder.
The most critical part of treatment for TM involves keeping the patient’s body functioning while the nervous system attempts to recover. This may sometimes require the use of a respirator. Caregivers may be instructed to move patients’ limbs to help keep their muscles working, and to reduce the likelihood of pressure sores developing in immobilized areas. Later, if patients begin to recover limb control, physical therapy is utilized to help improve muscle strength, coordination, and range of motion.
