Cerebellar atrophy is not exactly a disease, but a neuroimaging manifestation. Especially in the elderly. It is characterized by a decrease in the volume of the cerebellum and widening of the sulci on neuroimaging. It can affect the patient’s ability to walk and speak.
1. Finger movement
Stimulating the fingers of patients with cerebellar atrophy can improve reflexes and flexibility, soothe consciousness, reduce fatigue, relieve mental stress and tension, and enhance heart function.
2. Toe movement
The patient takes a standing or sitting position, with feet shoulder-width apart, and then grips the floor with the toes first. Then relax and do it 60 to 90 times in a row, either barefoot or in soft-soled shoes. Can be repeated multiple times a day.
3. Rehabilitation training
Jogging, doing morning exercises, playing Tai Chi, dancing square dance and other aerobic exercises can be appropriate choices. Do more delicate movements in daily life, such as dressing, brushing your teeth, tying shoelaces, and picking up beans. Communicate with people more, read more books, and strengthen language function training.
