Parkinson’s Disease is a neurodegenerative disorder that eventually destroys muscle control, balance, movement, and other bodily functions.
Symptoms include tremors, rigidity of muscles and slowness of movement, called bradykinesia.
While Parkinson’s Disease is chronic, symptoms can be delayed using the following treatments:
Proper medication can increase the levels of dopamine in the brain, allowing the patient to regain some control of their movements.
A change in lifestyle can help control motor symptoms in the earlier stages of the disease.
Surgical Treatment Options
Surgical procedures are available to help control severe motor control symptoms that are no longer controllable with medication.
