Parkinson’s effects the daily lives of many individuals. The progression and severity of this disease is dependent on the individual. Watching a loved one deteriorate with this disease can be heartbreaking to family and friends. Unfortunately, there is no cure yet.
The problem with this disease is it sometimes progresses slowly over time. It’s hard for many individuals to realize the early symptoms until it is in its later stages.
There are options depending on the individual to help improve the symptoms of this disease. The following options might help you or a loved one:
- Movement and Massage therapies.
Parkinson’s is a movement disorder, so exercise, stretching, or massage therapy targeting specific areas might help. In addition, medications that target movement should help too. Helpful options are very dependent on the individual though. What works for one person may not work for another.
Overall, the main goal is to slow the progression of this disease. We all want to see our loved ones live a better life. For most, this goal is possible with the right guidance and work ethic.
