Parkinson’s Disease is a chronic, progressive disorder that affects the nervous system. It starts with a slight tremor that progressively worsens over time. Within 10 years of the initial symptoms, half of the people diagnosed with Parkinson’s will require help with daily activities and more than 20% will need full-time nursing care. Physical therapy for this disease focuses on improving balance, coordination and strength.
Greendale Physical Therapy can help you manage these issues, including:
- Balance training to improve the ability to maintain proper posture while standing and walking
- Gait training to increase stride length and reduce the risk of falls
- Customized strengthening program for both upper and lower body muscles
Greendale Physical Therapy, LLC helped me regain the strength in my ankles and feet to keep me walking and continue to exercise and golf. The staff are all well skilled, pleasant, and supportive. I would highly recommend them to my friends for PT. They are a great group!
