Our results confirm the benefit of an intensive regime of inpatient physiotherapy. Although the original hypothesis cannot be accepted or rejected as the results were different for the 4 indices, the following general conclusions may be drawn: (1) there is a trend for females to improve more than males; (2) patients who have attended fewer courses tend to achieve more improvement; (3) younger patients do better than older patients; and (4) age of disease onset has little effect.
