The Academy of Neurologic Physical Therapy Degenerative Disease Special Interest Group (DDSIG) is a component of the American Physical Therapy Association. The DDSIG is comprised of physical therapists, physical therapist assistants, and students in physical therapy programs that have an interest in neurodegenerative disorders including Parkinson's disease, multiple sclerosis, amyotropic lateral sclerosis, Huntington's disease, and others. The DDSIG provides a forum to discuss advances in practice and the challenges of providing care for individuals with neurodegenerative disease. They are a valuable networking tool to help researchers, educators, and clinicians in the area of neurodegenerative disorders connect, share ideas, and learn from leaders in the field.

    DD SIG: CSM 2022 Poster Award: Differences in Spatiotemporal Gait Characteristics between Freezing of Gait Subtypes in Parkinson’s Disease - with Jason Longhurst

    DD SIG: CSM 2022 Poster Award: Differences in Spatiotemporal Gait Characteristics between Freezing of Gait Subtypes in Parkinson’s Disease - with Jason Longhurst

    In this episode, we highlight one of the winners of our poster awards at CSM 2022. Lindsay Fitchett talks to Chris Burke about her group’s systematic review of wearable sensors assessing balance and mobility in people with PD. They discuss themes from the review including differentiating PIGD and tremor-dominant subtypes, looking at fall risk, assessing movement strategies/transfers, and sensor-based interventions. They also discuss potential future avenues for sensors in rehab.

    DD SIG: CSM 2022 Poster Award: Differences in Spatiotemporal Gait Characteristics between Freezing of Gait Subtypes in Parkinson’s Disease - with Jason Longhurst

    In this episode, we highlight one of the winners of our poster awards at CSM 2022. Jason Longhurst talks to Katy McGraw about his research on gait characteristics in people with PD. His research looks at data from people without freezing, people with freezing on initiation, and people with non-initiation-type freezing. He discusses the role of gait variability in clinical presentation and expands on how this research might inform PT intervention and make interventions more specific to patients with different presentations in the future.

    DD SIG: CSM 2022 Platform Award: Consultative Coaching Model for Long-Term Exercise Engagement in People with Huntington’s Disease- with Lori Quinn

    Description: In this episode, we highlight the winners of our platform award at CSM 2022. Lori Quinn talks to Chris Burke about her team’s research on long-term PT follow up to promote exercise in people with HD. They discuss findings related to feasibility, participant engagement, and outcomes related to function, disease progress and physical activity during the year-long study. They also discuss innovative models to provide care for and do research with people with HD, and unique challenges in the HD population. Whether you missed it at CSM or are looking for bonus clinical insights beyond the platform, this is definitely worth a listen!

    DD SIG: The Clinical Practice Guideline for PT Management of Parkinson Disease - with Miriam Rafferty – Episode 29 

    DD SIG: The Clinical Practice Guideline for PT Management of Parkinson Disease - with Miriam Rafferty – Episode 29 

    A Clinical Practice Guideline (CPG) for PT management of PD was recently published in the Physical Therapy & Rehabilitation Journal in December, 2021. In this episode, Parm talks to Miriam Rafferty, an author of the CPG and co-chair of the CPG knowledge translation task force, about the development of this new guideline. They discuss the goals of the CPG and highlights intervention featured in the paper, as well as nuances about application to PT practice. This podcast gives both an introduction to the CPG for listeners who haven’t read it, and “behind the scenes” insights for listeners who have.
