Physiotherapists home exercise supervision should be provided in UK primary care

Interviews with specialist neuro-rehabilitation physiotherapists in Greater Manchester, UK show that patients with idiopathic and inherited ataxias should be given more that 6 PT sessions and also benefit from a supervised home exercise programme. The interviews with the physical therapists were summarized by Daker–White G et al. in Physiotherapy, 04/05/2013. Ataxia is described as a lack of coordination of the voluntary muscles resulting in irregular movements of the body.
