Hello,

First is necessary for a genetic testing to understand correctly the cause of the ataxia. The best way to achieve improvement in such situations is rehabilitation, be it physical and psychological. The rehab should be stated in a specialized center.

Take care. Hope I have answered your question. Let me know if I can assist you further.
