Cerebellar ataxia is a dramatic sign of neurologic disease that gets the clients attention and brings them to you looking for answers. The recent identification of hereditary causes of ataxia has illuminated how the cerebellum functions and how dysfunction produces the signs we see. In this presentation, we will correlate the structure and function of the cerebellum with signs of disease. We will differentiate cerebellar signs from other conditions and generate a sound diagnostic plan to be able to give our clients the answers they seek and apply rational therapy where possible.
Participants will correlate the anatomy and function of the cerebellum with the signs of disease
Participants will develop a rational diagnostic approach that will direct appropriate therapy
