Alabama Disability Attorney VESTAVIA CMT

Alabama Disability Attorney VESTAVIA HILLS: CMT (Charcot Marie Tooth) is a genetic disorder which damages the peripheral nerves (the nerved outside the brain and spinal cord). Charcot Marie Tooth is hereditary and is also known as hereditary motor and sensory neuropathy.

The main symptoms of Charcot Marie Tooth are muscle weakness, decreased muscle size and decreased sensation of the affected area. It is not uncommon to experience: weakness in your legs, feet, ankles, deformities of the feet (hammertoes), numbness or tingling in the lower extremities, high foot arches or foot drop.

Charcot Marie Tooth suffers slowly lose normal use of their extremities as nerves degenerate and muscles weaken, making it difficult even to perform activities of daily living, much less working 8 hours a day, 5 days a week, 50 weeks a year.

There is no cure for CMT, although physical therapy and moderate physical activity can be beneficial.
