What is Parkinson’s Disease?
Parkinson’s disease is a progressive, neurological disorder that affects the nerve cells in the brain. Common symptoms of Parkinson’s disease include slurred speech, irregular facial expressions, and severe tremors.
Fortunately, physical therapy can help slow the progress of Parkinson’s and provide relief for symptoms. It also helps to improve flexibility and strength by addressing several issues that Parkinson’s disease may cause, including abnormal gait, freezing, and dystonia.
