Parkinson’s disease is an age-related degenerative brain condition, meaning it causes parts of your brain to deteriorate. It’s best known for causing slowed movements, tremors, balance problems and more. Most cases happen for unknown reasons, but some are inherited. The condition isn’t curable, but there are many different treatment options.
Symptoms of Parkinson’s Disease
Causes of Parkinson’s Disease
Doctors do not yet know the cause of the disorder, and it's thought to be inherited in only a small proportion of cases. Exposure to certain toxins in the environment is also thought to play a small role.
A physical therapist will work directly with a person to create routines and exercises to help them regain or prevent loss of movement. Symptoms and progression of Parkinson’s disease vary from one person to the next, so a physical therapist will devise a treatment plan for each individual.Physical therapy (PT) improves a person’s range of movement, prevents further injury or disability, and improves the quality of a person’s life.
