Discussion of treatments for Machado-Joseph Disease:
MJD is incurable, but some symptoms of the disease can
be treated. For those patients who show parkinsonian features, levodopa
therapy can help for many years. Treatment with antispasmodic drugs, such
as baclofen, can help reduce spasticity. Physiotherapy can help patients
cope with disability associated with gait problems, and physical aids,
such as walkers and wheelchairs, can assist the patient with everyday
activities. Other problems, such as sleep disturbances, cramps, and
urinary dysfunction, can be treated with medications and medical care.
