For corticobasal degeneration, therapies focus on helping compensate for the difficulties with coordination and speech. Medication therapies may help manage muscle jerks or help improve attention or mood-related changes. Treatments for other movement disorders like Parkinson’s disease aren’t often effective. There isn’t a treatment to cure the disease.

Your healthcare provider may recommend:

  • Occupational therapy to help you learn new ways to complete daily tasks and maintain independence.
  • Physical therapy to help maintain mobility and ease muscle contractions.
  • Speech therapy to aid communication and swallowing.
