Parkinson's Disease

Information And Treatment

Parkinson’s Disease is a degenerative neurological condition that affects the proper function of the brain and nervous system, leading to shaking, uneven gait, stiffness, weakness and pain in the muscles, and problems with coordination, among other issues. It is characterized by the destruction of dopamine-producing cells in the brain.

One of the primary CAM treatments for Parkinson’s disease is physical fitness training, which can alleviate issues with strength and balance and improve quality of life. According to a study done by the Touch Research Institute, massage therapy can also improve quality of sleep and overall mood and mobility in people with Parkinson’s.
