Evidence of the effectiveness of rehabilitation interventions in spinocerebellar ataxia is scarce and variable. OBJECTIVES: The aim of this systematic review was to gather the existing evidence on the effectiveness of these interventions. MATERIAL AND METHODS: To do this, we analysed all the clinical trials published to date and assessed their results in terms of improved balance, gait, and performance of daily activities after treatment. Significant improvements were found for posture (P<.008) and gait (P<.02), as well as a reduction in the scores for the SARAg&p subscale (gait and posture) and SCAFI 8MW index (gait speed) (P=.02). We also observed improvements in speech disorders (P=.02), depressive symptoms (P<.0001) and accidental falls (P<.005).
