Diagnosis of AVM

Diagnosis of AVM

Most people with arteriovenous malformation (AVM) are asymptomatic of the condition. This means that they have no symptoms and are unaware of the underlying pathology.

Therefore, AVM is often discovered and diagnosed as an incidental finding during other medical investigations. This means the AVM is revealed when an individual begins treatment for an unrelated condition such as seizures, epilepsy or haemorrhage.

AVM's can occur in several parts of the body including spleen, liver, kidney and eyes but are mostly commonly seen in the brain and spinal cord. This means that AVM's can cause widespread symptoms affecting any part of the body and they vary in severity, from mild to severely disabling.

Neurological physiotherapy treatment facilitates an effective and efficient recovery to enable an individual to recover from the symptoms of AVM. Treatment can be provided at home or in the clinic in order to increase muscle strength, co-ordination, balance and mobility.
