  • Perceived effectiveness for Hereditary Spastic Paraplegia: Moderate
  • Side Effects: Mild
  • Adherence: Always
  • Burden: A little
Dosage: Daily
Advice & Tips: There is no other way to report my having to move to 2 canes in the summer of 2011, as my condition naturally progressed. The effectiveness is moderate- because as long as your condition requires you to have assistance to walk it certainly keeps you upright, but of course other than keeping your usable muscle fibers as strong as possible doesn't affect the disorder itself. In terms of cost, you'd think for equipment they'd give you a one-time price option for permanent devices! These forms can be so frustrating!
