ARSACS Exercise Program at Home

The Ataxia Charlevoix- Saguenay Foundation and the GRIMN research team is pleased to introduce an exercise program tailored specifically for individuals affected by ARSACS. According to the medical community, an exercise program developed according to the person’s capabilities can improve the physical condition.

Before starting the program, it is crucial to undergo an assessment conducted by a qualified physiotherapist. The first part of the document provides the physiotherapist with the procedures for the evaluation and assignment of the initial level of difficulty of the exercises. The exercise program is divided into 3 areas (sitting balance, standing balance and sitting-standing transfer) with photos and videos.
