Parkinson's disease is a progressive neurological disorder that can affect movement. It can cause tremors, stiffness, slowness of movement, and balance problems. Parkinson's rehabilitation can help to improve these symptoms and maintain independence.
Parkinson's rehabilitation is important because it can:
● Improve their mobility and balance. This can help them to walk more easily, avoid falls, and participate in activities of daily living.
● Reduce their pain. Parkinson's disease can cause pain in the muscles and joints. Rehabilitation can help to reduce this pain and improve overall function.
● Improve their quality of life. Parkinson's disease can have a significant impact on quality of life. Rehabilitation can help to improve mood, energy levels, and overall well-being.
A Parkinson's rehabilitation session typically begins with a consultation and assessment. The therapist will talk to you about your symptoms, goals, and medical history. They will also assess your strength, balance, and range of motion.
Once the therapist has a good understanding of your needs, they will develop a personalized rehabilitation plan. This plan may include exercises, stretches, and other activities. The therapist will teach you how to do these exercises safely and effectively.
The session may also include education about Parkinson's disease and how to manage your symptoms. The therapist may also provide you with resources and support.
