Parkinson's disease is a progressive nervous system disorder affecting movement. Symptoms can include muscle rigidity, tremors, slowness of movement and changes in speech. While Parkinson's disease can't be cured, medication - along with physical therapy - can improve symptoms. Physical therapy can play a vital role in improving strength and flexibility, decreasing pain and stiffness, and allowing individuals to stay as active as possible.
After this 60-minute webinar you will be able to:
- Identify underlying causes of Parkinson’s disease
- Describe motor and non-motor symptoms associated with Parkinson’s disease
- Explore current treatment options for those living with Parkinson’s disease
- Understand the role physical activity and therapy plays for individuals with Parkinson’s disease
