Charcot-Marie-Tooth Disease (CMT) Treatments

For more information on the condition Charcot-Marie - Tooth Disease (CMT)

Treatments - There are no treatments for the disease but there are treatments for the signs and symptoms such as physical or occupational therapy. Braces or splints (orthoses) are often used to help with walking. As foot drop is a common result of CMT, ankle foot orthoses (AFO) or foot drop splints are frequently used by people who have CMT. The AFO controls the ankle and prevents the foot from dropping reducing the chance of catching the toes, tripping or turning the ankles.
