Parkinson’s Disease and Rehabilitation

Parkinson’s disease is a neurodegenerative disorder where brain cells that make dopamine, or neurons that control movement, are affected. This can cause symptoms like shaking, tremors, muscle stiffness, and difficulty with balance and walking.

Research has shown that a combined focus on medical management and intensive rehabilitation can dramatically improve function and quality of life for individuals living with Parkinson’s.
