Parkinson’s disease is a progressive nervous system disorder that affects movement. It is usually characterized by resting tremors as well as slowing of movement and movement initiation. In the early stages of Parkinson’s disease, your face may show little or no expression. Your arms may not swing when you walk. Your speech may become soft or slurred. Parkinson’s disease symptoms worsen as your condition progresses over time.
How Physical Therapy Helps Parkinson’s Disease
Physical Therapy treatment can be used to improve movement, coordination, and tremors. The therapists at Catalyst Physical Therapy are also trained in the LSVT BIG exercises.
