Parkinson's Disease treatment Calgary

Parkinson’s disease is diagnosed based on the symptoms and a neurological examination. The Parkinson's illness has no known treatment. However, Parkinson's disease sufferers can effectively manage their symptoms and challenges with medication and rehabilitation services provided by a multidisciplinary team.

Parkinson's disease symptoms include tremor, rigidity, stiffness, and slowness of movement. Individuals frequently exhibit postural instability, a flexed posture, and a shuffling gait. A mask-like facial expression and trembling of the arms and legs may be observed by family members. These issues may make it difficult to carry out regular daily tasks and move around the house safely. Changes in feeling, voice, behaviour, thinking, and sleeping can all be secondary issues brought on by Parkinson's disease.

How is Parkinson's Disease treated?

Physiotherapists are specialists in identifying functional restrictions and prescribing exercises that specifically target these areas to improve range of motion. Therefore, this includes workouts for strength, flexibility, balance, and general health in people with Parkinson's. The only item that has been found to reduce the progression of Parkinson's disease is exercise. In the end, physiotherapy is intended to be used in conjunction with medicines to treat Parkinson's disease.

What are the causes of Parkinson's Disease?

Although the precise reason why brain cells quit manufacturing the chemical dopamine is unknown, it is believed that genetic factors play a tiny role in a small number of cases. Motor and cognitive issues are brought on by dopamine deficiency because it interferes with the transmission of nerve impulses in the brain.

How does physiotherapy help with Parkinson’s??

Additionally, physiotherapists might act as a link between patients and doctors who are constrained by time and knowledge.

Exercise has been demonstrated to lessen people's potential pain as well as their potential physical and cognitive symptoms. Additionally, physical activity and exercise have positive impacts on things like memory, mood, sleep, weariness, and sadness as well as side effects that may arise from limited mobility.
