Abstract

Guillain-Barre Syndrome (GBS) is a self-limiting autoimmune disorder that causes neuromuscular deficits, including quadriparesis. Definitive outcome data from physical therapy (PT) research, involving patients with GBS, are scarce. Most PT interventions for patients with GBS derive from approaches employed for other neuromuscular diagnoses. The purpose of this case report is to illustrate the role of neurodevelopmental sequencing in the PT management of a geriatric patient with GBS.
