Parkinson’s Disease

Parkinson’s Disease is an insult to the neurological system, which can significantly limit function. Patients suffering from it frequently present with impaired mobility, severe stiffness in trunk and limbs, postural instability/balance impairments, tremors, altered gait patterns, difficulty initiating movements and a host of other symptoms. Skilled physical therapy can be a great way to promote functional improvement and overall management of the vast changes which can be overwhelming to patients and their families. Patients are given customized plans of care which focus on safety awareness, functional mobility, balance efficiency and maximizing independence. Home exercises and cues are often useful in the management of the associated symptoms of Parkinson’s.
