  • Once you are diagnosed with polio there is no cure. One of the things that can help you walk again is physical therapy. Physical therapy helps the paralyzed limbs stay healthy. Also if you want your child polio free you you should give them the vaccination before they turn 6 or 7. You should also keep your personal hygiene very clean.
  • If you are able to walk again that's great... but don't get your hopes up you will never walk the same again!
