What is SMA?

Spinal Muscular Atrophy (SMA) is a genetic condition. This inherited condition affects the nerves in the spinal cords which control all of the muscle movement of the body, including the muscles of head control, arm and leg movement, and the actions of breathing, coughing becomes more difficult and breathing becomes laboured.
SMA Australia has produced a newly diagnosed booklet as an important resource, so you can read about best practice for SMA today.
