Polio Home > Treatment for Polio
For those that develop a disability from polio, there are considerations to discuss with the healthcare provider, including:
- Lifestyle changes
- Support groups
- Mobility aids
- Breathing equipment.
While there is no cure for polio disease, most people recover without any long-term problems. However, some people (less than 1 percent) will develop permanent paralysis. Unfortunately, there is no treatment that can prevent this complication.
