Charcot-Maire-Tooth Disease Treatments


Although there is no cure for CMT, treatment may help to improve function, coordination, and mobility. Treatment is also essential to protect against injury due to muscle weakness and diminished sensation. Treatment may include:

  • Physical and occupational therapy
  • Moderate exercise
  • Braces of lower legs
  • Shoe inserts to correct foot deformity
  • Foot care and routine exams with a specialist (podiatrist)
  • Orthopedic surgery
