Effects of a Metabolic Disorder

Effects of a Metabolic Disorder

The effects of a metabolic disorder depend on the type and how quickly it is treated.

A metabolic disorder can cause some of these symptoms:

  • Behavioural Difficulties such as regular tantrums
  • Jerking movements in arms and legs
  • Weight loss and loss of muscle bulk
  • Muscle weakness
  • Poor vision
  • Paralysis
  • Fatigue
  • Low tone (hypertonia) which can make your child's limbs feel floppy. This can make the activation of your childs muscles really difficult which could make them fatigue quicker.

Here at Manchester Neuro Physio we can help your child achieve their full potential by creating a personalised treatment plan to help your child achieve functional goals and improve their quality of life.
