Parkinson’s Disease Physical Therapy Home Service
Parkinson’s disease is a neurodegenerative condition that causes a movement disorder in the patient. This is caused by a defect at the substantia negra, a part of the brain responsible for the secretion of dopamine, the substance responsible for the control of one’s muscle movement. Its symptoms include: resting tremor, bradykinesia, rigidity and postural instability.
Most cases of parkinsonism have unknown cause. A patient suffering from parkinsonism may develop different complications like pressure sores, muscular atrophy, and general body weakness due to physical inactivity. A patient with parkinsonism require the total support of his or her family.
The common treatment for a patient with parkinsonism is the prescription of the drug called levodopa. This serves as a temporary substitute for dopamine. According to researches, aside from levodopa, regular exercise substantially improves the functional performance of a parkinsonism patient.
A physical therapist is an expert in providing the proper rehabilitation for individuals suffering from parkinsonism. He or she is the one who designs the exercise regimen suitable for the patient. Physical rehabilitation aids in improving the patient’s mobility and minimizes the adverse effect of its complications.
