Exercise and Physical Therapy for Inherited Neuropathies

After attending the CMTA Physical Therapy Workshop in late 2017, CMTA Board Member Steve O’Donnell realized the tremendous need for a series of CMT physical therapy-centered exercise videos. As an avid and committed workout enthusiast, Steve has seen first-hand the crucial role fitness plays in slowing the progression of CMT symptoms.

Steve has partnered with renowned Physical Therapist/Neurologic Clinical Specialist Mike Studer to create a comprehensive fitness program for all levels and abilities that focuses on the following five areas: Flexibility, Balance, Strengthening, Endurance and Function. Please take the time to watch these videos and participate at your level. When you have mastered that level, challenge yourself to take your function to the next level. It is Steve’s hope that this workout will inspire you to get moving!
