Thanks for your query.
Cerebral atrophy refers to mild shrinkage of brain, which normally happens as one grows older. The treatment comprises of administering drugs which improve the blood suppy to the brain. Piracetam is one such medication. Even atrial of hyperbaric oxygen therapy may also help significantly.
You may take vitamin B12 supplements-methycobal 500 mcg once daily.
You can also have physiotherapy sessions, speech therapy, regular exercises and daily walking.
You will gradually recover over time, usually in a few months to one year time.
I do hope that you have found something helpful and I will be glad to answer any further query.
Take care
