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.

Learning objectives:

  1. Identify underlying causes of Parkinson’s disease
  2. Describe motor and non-motor symptoms associated with Parkinson’s disease
  3. Explore current treatment options for those living with Parkinson’s disease
  4. Understand the role physical activity and therapy plays for individuals with Parkinson’s disease

Presenter:

Maureen Bonanni, MSPT

The 1-hour presentation will include 1.0 CEU credit for CCMC  &  CRC.
