Gait ataxia is one of the most common and debilitating motor disorders associated with cerebellar damage.1 Although some recovery occurs following a single, focal lesion (e.g., stroke, benign tumor),2 steady declines in gait and balance function are typical among individuals with cerebellar degenerative diseases. Currently, there are no pharmacologic treatments available to reverse or even substantially reduce motor disability caused by cerebellar degeneration. Thus, physical therapy forms the… Expand
