Metabolic Disorders

Metabolic Disorders

A problem in the metabolism results in the body being unable to break down food into its simpler components such as fats, protein and carbohydrates (sugar). If a child has a metabolic disorder it tends to be inherited.

The symptoms of metabolic disorders vary among individuals and types of disorders.

Some symptoms are:

  • Muscle weakness
  • Muscle spasm
  • Muscle seizures
  • Poor concentration
  • Low blood sugar
  • Paralysis

Our Physiotherapists at Manchester Neuro Physio can use a variety of techniques to help minimise the effects of a metabolic disorder and help your child achieve their full potential.
