I gone through the history.
We may control and manage and give a better life.many neurological motor neuron disease can be managed effectively in ayurveda.
After a detailed physical and neurological examination he need internal medications and panchakarma and varma acupressure(traditional method) will stimulate the brain as well as cerebellum.
you need inpatient treatment for minimum 20 days. Depends upon the response treatment protocol will extend and vary.

Sir last question...I have read the it is a genetical disorder. So is there any possibility that we will suffer from the same disease???
Answered by Dr. Senthilnathan Subramanian 1 hour later
Brief Answer:
rare chance of genetic exposure

Detailed Answer:
first we have to rule out the clear cause for your father condition .many reason like stroke, any injury and other major causes are there.

not all cerebellar ataxia caused only by genetic disorder.

however if your father got it through gene exposure from your ancestor or gene mutation chances are there to affect you.
To confirm with gene exposure you need to go for gene for in XXXXXXX there is no lab to do that test.
but as of now modern medical science research very minimal and so rare chances to affect you.

thank you
hope I answered your query.
