Polio, also known as Poliomyelitis, is a highly contagious disease caused by a virus that attacks the nervous system. There are three types of Polio infections namely Sub-Clinical, Non-Paralytic and Paralytic. Some of the common signs of Polio include sore, red throat, headache, vomiting, and general discomfort.
HOW IS POLIO DIAGNOSED?
Poliovirus is often transmitted from one person to another through fecal matter and a Pediatric/General Physician diagnoses Polio by conducting a physical examination and taking a sample of the patient's throat secretions, stool or cerebrospinal fluid.
HOW IS POLIO TREATED?
There is no cure for Polio and doctors can only treat its symptoms. Some of the common treatments for Polio include physical therapy and antibiotics to relieve the symptoms.
