Abstract

Huntington's disease is an inherited disorder of the CNS that results in progressive deterioration of mobility and cognition and also affects behaviour. There are no disease-modifying interventions available to date, although there has been considerable progress in research directed at understanding the pathological basis of the disease with a view to identifying potential treatments. It is however important not to overlook currently available treatment strategies, including rehabilitation approaches. There has been little work to date to explore the potential of such approaches and here we highlight the need for more systematic studies in this area as well as the need for good objective assessment tools and the potential role that rehabilitation and training may have in the application of novel treatment options.
