The High-Level Mobility Assessment Tool (Himat) In Myotonic Dystrophy Type 2: A Case Report, Kim B. Smith, Evan M. Pucillo 2018 Nova Southeastern University

The High-Level Mobility Assessment Tool (Himat) In Myotonic Dystrophy Type 2: A Case Report, Kim B. Smith, Evan M. Pucillo

Physical Therapy

Myotonic dystrophy type 2 (DM2) is a progressive muscular dystrophy with multi-system manifestations and can affect functional mobility, gait, and balance. Currently, there are few reports of functional outcome measures in this population. This case describes the change in function detected by the High-level Mobility Assessment Tool (HiMAT) and 30-second Chair Stand Test (CST) in a high-functioning adult female with DM2 after physical therapy treatment. The patient’s chief complaint was muscular pain and fatigue that affected activities of daily living (ADLs). Multimodal physical therapy focused on neuromuscular re-education, balance and strength training, patient education, and moderate cardiorespiratory training. Improvements ...
