Cerebellum atrophy caused by TBI

My daughter had an accident at the age of 2 which was later diagnosed as a Traumatic Brain Injury. She is now 23 years old and has had some difficulties lately with coordination and balance (more than usual). She has been falling a lot so the neurologist ordered and MRI to determine if there was another cause for recent concern. Results indicate that she has significant atrophy in her cerebellum region but the dr. does not think there is any new findings but that the scar tissue from her traumatic brain injury has caused the degeneration. What treatments if any would you recommend and have there been any trials with stimulant treatment for patients with TBI?

Hello and hope you are doing well.

If its a recent event steroids may help. But this may not help for an old scarred lesion. Physical therapy may help improve her symptoms.

Hope this helped and do keep us posted.
