Parkinson’s UK provide excellent clear, up-to-date information and resources for survivors, carers and families.
In 2014 there are new European Physiotherapy Guidelines for Parkinson’s Disease available for those with the condition.
The main problems that Parkinson’s patient present with are Tremor (shaking), Slowness of movement and Rigidity (stiffness). Physiotherapy input early after diagnosis is beneficial to be proactive in minimise the effects of stiffness etc. I provide holistic assessments and agreed a programme to improve and manage the issues of Parkinson’s.
