Balance Loss Of
Source: Papers On Health
Cases where loss of balance in walking and standing
are due to St. Vitus' Dance will be treated under that head. Other
cases, where loss of power in the motor nerves causes this
unsteadiness, are treated of here. As these cases differ totally from
St. Vitus' Dance in cause and treatment, it is well carefully to
distinguish between them. In St. Vitus' Dance, then, notice that the
patient cannot lie still. In case of simple loss of power, he staggers
or falls only when moving, or trying to move. Probably also in the last
case there are cold feet and clammy skin. For this, bathe the feet at
bedtime in hot water, dry, and rub them with hot oil. Then apply to the
back on going to bed a warm cloth, covered with soap lather (see
Lather), with dry towel above it. Do this each night for a week. When
taking off the cloth, sponge the back with warm vinegar or weak acid
(see Acetic Acid), and rub with warm olive oil.
After a week of this treatment, apply each night for two or three days,
a large BRAN POULTICE (see) across the loins for an hour at bedtime,
with olive oil before and after. Above all, conscientiously let the
patient rest. A good deal of lying in bed and on a sofa must be
taken, and good nourishment given (see Assimilation, etc.). Some
weeks of alternate treatment like this should effect a great
improvement, if not a radical cure.
