In this episode, Dr. Lori Quinn talks to Parm about key features of Huntington’s Disease for PTs to recognize and examine, treatment approaches, and her rehabilitation-based research with this population. This is a great learning opportunity for clinicians familiar with HD as well as those who may see it very rarely (or haven’t seen it at all yet!). Lori also gives some great clinical pearls that apply to working with patients with any rare neurological condition.
