There is no specific therapy to treat Friedreich's Ataxia. Management typically involves physical therapy to improve coordination and balance, occupational therapy to help with daily activities, and medications to manage symptoms such as muscle stiffness and heart complications. Research is ongoing to explore potential treatments that may target the underlying genetic cause of the disease.
