Online community GeneFo announces a free webinar to provide those living with Charcot-Marie-Tooth (CMT) disease updated insights into exercise and physical therapy strategies to help manage the symptoms.

The webinar, titled, “Exercise and Physical Therapy Strategies for CMT Symptoms,” with guest speaker Dr Robert Chetlin from the West Virginia School of Medicine, will be held March 29 at 1 pm EST.

Chetlin will share a list of pragmatic steps to begin an exercise and physical therapy program, exercises that are best for specific symptoms, what you can do at home, why you need a personal trainer, and ways to stay motivated.

“Exercise has been demonstrated to be effective in the management of Charcot-Marie-Tooth Disease along several lines,” Chetlin says, in a press release. “We know that it improves strength, which is directly related to what’s described as ‘functional independence’—that is, one’s ability to carry out independently activities of daily living.”
