Abstract

Cueing has been advocated for many years as "tricks" that can aid walking in people with Parkinson's disease. However, applying cueing within a comprehensive rehabilitation program is still an area that needs further research and development. This review addresses the therapeutic application of cueing to gait and mobility problems in Parkinson's disease, considered against the conceptual framework of the International Classification of Functioning, Disability, and Health and covering the broad domains that impact overall health and function. The evidence for therapeutic use of cueing is increasing and in this review, randomized clinical trials are summarized. In addition, the mobility problems that are amenable to cueing are described and the specific application of cues is outlined. Practical examples are provided for application in the clinical and home setting.
