Summary of "Physical Therapy and Exercise Interventions in Huntington's Disease: A Mixed Methods Systematic Review."

A number of studies evaluating physical therapy and exercise interventions in Huntington's disease have been conducted over the past 15 years. However, an assessment of the quality and strength of the evidence in support of these interventions is lacking.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

Methods or programs of physical activities which can be used to promote, maintain, or restore the physical and physiological well-being of an individual.

Controlled physical activity, more strenuous than at rest, which is performed in order to allow assessment of physiological functions, particularly cardiovascular and pulmonary, but also aerobic capacity. Maximal (most intense) exercise is usually required but submaximal exercise is also used. The intensity of exercise is often graded, using criteria such as rate of work done, oxygen consumption, and heart rate.

Therapeutic modalities frequently used in PHYSICAL THERAPY (SPECIALTY) by physical therapists or physiotherapists to promote, maintain, or restore the physical and physiological well-being of an individual.

Persons trained in PHYSICAL THERAPY SPECIALTY to make use of PHYSICAL THERAPY MODALITIES to prevent, correct, and alleviate movement dysfunction.

Instructional programs in the care and development of the body, often in schools. The concept does not include prescribed exercises, which is EXERCISE THERAPY.
