Alopecia Cure by Physiotherapy
Alopecia Areata is defined as premature loss of hair. Some times leads to total loss of hair from the body.
The condition is thought to be an autoimmune disorder in which the body attacks its own hair follicles and suppresses or stops hair growth. There is evidence that T cell lymphocytes cluster around these follicles, causing inflammation and subsequent hair loss. An unknown environmental trigger such as emotional stress or a pathogen is thought to combine with hereditary factors to cause the condition. There are a few recorded cases of babies being born with congenital alopecia areata; however, these are not cases of autoimmune disease because an infant is born without a fully developed immune system.
Growth of fine hair may be seen within two months. Majority of patients recover within a year. Sometimes patient may not recover. The new hair which appears can be pigmented, different from normal hair.
Treatment should be continued for 2-3 months, and as the hair starts growing UVR must be stopped to that area. This should not be confused with balding. Sympathy and understanding is important in these cases.
