Abstract

This document aims to provide recommendations for healthcare professionals on the diagnosis and management of people with ataxia. Ataxia means ‘lack of coordination’ and it is a symptom of many conditions. These guidelines focus on the progressive ataxias, and exclude disorders where ataxia is an epiphenomenon of another neurological condition (see Table 1). Certain aspects of these Guidelines may however be relevant to these other conditions. They have been developed through extensive consultation with ataxia specialist neurologists and other healthcare professionals in collaboration with the patient support organisation, Ataxia UK.
