In brief: Mostly Symptomatic
Its a hereditary motor sensory neuropathy.
Unfortunately, there is no cure for CMT disease. There are at least 5 different types. How the kid does clinically depends also on its type. Treating pain with medications, orthopedic braces, occupational and physical therapy etc are the main stay of treatment. I assume that the diagnosis is already made, with the help of a geneticist, neurologist etc.

In brief: Genetic Disorder
Charcot-marie-tooth (cmt) disease is an inherited disorder of the peripheral nerves.
Cmt and other inherited disorders are due to defects of genes for various proteins in the nerve fibers. Usually the first signs of CMT are that the child or teenager has problems with his feet. He may have ankle sprains, tripping, or appear clumsy. Special genetic tests are available to identify some types o cmt.
