Physical therapy is an important component in treating individuals with HD. Early intervention can increase an individual’s mobility while allowing them to maintain independence. Until now, there have been no standards of care in the area of physical therapy for persons with HD. HDSA is pleased to offer new clinical guidelines and online tools that have been developed by the European Huntington’s Disease Network (EHDN) physical therapy working group in partnership with Cardiff University and with input from U.S. physical therapists. The clinical practice guidelines, handbook and tools were published in January 2020.
