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.
