The muscle-related effects of postpolio syndrome are possibly associated with an ongoing process of denervation and reinnervation, reaching a point at which denervation is no longer compensated for by reinnervation.
The cause of this denervation is unknown, but an inflammatory process is possible.

Origin of AIDS: contaminated polio vaccine theory refuted.
Polio can be spread through contact with contaminated faeces (for example, by changing an infected baby’s diapers) or through airborne droplets, in food, or in water.
The virus enters the body by nose or mouth, and then travels to the intestines where it incubates.Polio had existed for thousands of years quietly as an endemic pathogen until the 1880s, when major epidemics began to occur in Europe; soon after, widespread epidemics appeared in the United States .By 1910, much of the world experienced a dramatic increase in polio cases and epidemics became regular events, primarily in cities during the summer months.Evaluation of the need for orthoses and assistive devices is often required.INTRODUCTION: Poliomyelitis is an acute, viral, infectious disease spread from person to person, primarily via the fecal-oral route.Rehabilitation in patients with postpolio syndrome should take a multi professional and multidisciplinary approach, with an emphasis on physiotherapy, including enhanced or individually modified physical activity, and muscle training.Patients with postpolio syndrome should be advised to avoid both inactivity and over use of weak muscles.Showed first 250 characters For instance, in the US the "March of Dimes" was done for children.People started to send their dimes and for the first three days the White House collected 230.000 silver dimes.Bulbar polio leads to weakness of muscles innervated by cranial nerves.Bulbospinal polio is a combination of bulbar and spinal paralysis .
