If you suspect you or a loved one are experiencing symptoms of Parkinson’s disease, bring it to your doctor’s attention early.
Our Approach to Parkinson’s Diagnosis and Treatment
During its early stages, Parkinson’s may cause tremors and changes to posture, walking and facial expressions. Someone with advanced Parkinson’s may lose the ability to stand or walk due to stiffness.
In addition to symptoms typical of movement disorders, Parkinson’s disease can cause non-motor symptoms like depression, sleep behavior disorders, loss of sense of smell or cognitive impairment.
Medications can improve Parkinson’s symptoms and quality of life, especially when prescribed early. Rehabilitation, including LSVT BIG® & LOUD®, may also help.
In some cases, Inspira neurologists may suggest surgery to regulate certain regions of your brain to improve symptoms.
