Question Needing some help/advice

My father had polio when he was a child. He has always had tremors and they were blamed on the polio. A local doctor said he had post-polio (this doctor didn't know anything about post-polio until we brought him information off the internet) but when he went to a specialist in post-polio he told my father that he did not have post-polio. He started getting botox shots to help the tremors but now he is falling down a lot. He has told me that he can tell when his legs are about to give way but there is nothing he can do to stop it. Does this sound like a symptom for post-polio? Any help or info would be appreciated.
