Parkinsonism Treatment at Our Rehabilitation Centre

Parkinsonism Treatment at Our Rehabilitation Centre

Living with Parkinsonism, a group of neurological disorders that cause movement difficulties similar to Parkinson’s disease, can be challenging. At our Holistic Physical Recovery and Rehabilitation Centre, we understand these challenges. We are committed to providing comprehensive, patient-centered care that addresses both the physical and emotional aspects of this condition.

Understanding Parkinsonism

Parkinsonism encompasses several disorders, including Parkinson’s disease, that affect the movement control centers of the brain. Common symptoms include tremors, stiffness, slowed movement, and balance problems. While these symptoms can significantly impact daily life, a holistic approach to treatment can help manage them effectively, improving overall quality of life.

Other symptoms associated with Parkinsonism include:

  • Dementia
  • Issues with the autonomic nervous system, such as problems with controlled movements or spasms
  • Early problems with balance
  • Rapid onset and progression of symptoms

Each underlying cause of Parkinsonism, such as dementia with Lewy bodies, also has its own unique set of symptoms.

Causes

Parkinsonism can be caused by Parkinson’s disease itself as well as another underlying condition.

A person with Parkinsonism usually starts developing symptoms at anywhere from age 50 to 80, according to the University of Texas Southwestern Medical Center.

Parkinson’s disease can cause varying and progressive symptoms throughout its course. Some of the most common symptoms associated with the disease include:

  • Difficulty showing facial expressions
  • Muscle stiffness
  • Slowed, affected movements
  • Speech changes
  • Tremor, especially of one hand

A person with Parkinsonism may have some, but not all, of the symptoms listed above. This is because they also have an additional disorder that affects the brain’s functioning.

For example, people with Parkinsonism often do not have the hand tremor that affects many people with Parkinson’s disease.

Our Holistic Approach

Our rehabilitation center adopts a holistic approach to Parkinsonism treatment, focusing on the integration of various therapies to support physical, mental, and emotional well-being.

Physiotherapy

Movement and Balance Training: Specialized exercises to improve coordination, balance, and overall mobility. This can help reduce the risk of falls and enhance independence in daily activities.

Strength Training: Targeted workouts to enhance muscle strength and reduce rigidity. Strength training can also help alleviate muscle pain and improve endurance.

Gait Training: Techniques to improve walking patterns and gait. Gait training can significantly enhance walking speed, reduce shuffling, and promote a more stable stride.

Flexibility Exercises: Stretching routines designed to increase flexibility and reduce muscle stiffness are common challenges in Parkinsonism.

Functional Exercises: Activities tailored to enhance the ability to perform daily tasks, such as getting up from a chair, dressing, and other routine activities.

Acupuncture

Pain Management: Acupuncture can help reduce chronic pain associated with muscle stiffness and rigidity. It works by stimulating specific points in the body to promote natural pain relief mechanisms.

Improved Mobility: Regular acupuncture sessions can enhance overall mobility by reducing muscle tension and improving circulation, which helps alleviate symptoms such as tremors and stiffness.

Stress Reduction: Acupuncture is known for its calming effects, helping to reduce stress and anxiety, which can exacerbate Parkinsonism symptoms.

Energy Flow: By balancing the body’s energy flow, acupuncture helps improve overall well-being and resilience against the physical and emotional stress of living with Parkinsonism.
