Hi there I understand your concern... Unfortunately there is no specific treatment for SMA now...treatment options are under clinical trials...A multidisciplinary team of healthcare professionals will be needed to manage the symptoms of SMA. The team may include specialists in neurology, genetics, palliative care, respiratory medicine, physiotherapy, occupational therapy, speech and language therapy and gastrointestinal /dietetics....discuss the issue with your treating doctors they will guide you further.
