Parkinson's Disease

Parkinson's Rehabilitation

Parkinson's disease is one of the most common neurodegenerative disorders in the world. What often starts as hand tremors can progress until patients experience a huge functional loss that impacts their independence. At PAM Health, our Parkinson's rehabilitation centers specialize in the medical and therapeutic care of individuals with Parkinson's disease.

Our multidisciplinary team uses various treatment approaches to create a personalized Parkinson's Rehabilitation Program to address the impacts on your physical, emotional, and cognitive state. The goal is to maximize your ability to function to maintain your highest quality of life.

What Is Parkinson’s Disease?

Parkinson’s disease is more than a movement disorder. It's a complex disease with far-reaching consequences affecting a person's physical, mental, and emotional health. Parkinson's is caused when neurons in the area of the brain that controls movement become impaired or die, causing them to produce less dopamine. This phenomenon leads to the physical symptoms associated with Parkinson's.

This degenerative disorder affects each person differently. Parkinson's earliest signs are tremors, shaking, and muscle stiffness. As the disease progresses, it can influence walking and balance, speech, self-care skills, and other bodily functions. The disease can also affect thinking, emotions, and behavior.

How Can Parkinson's Disease Rehabilitation Help?

Our Parkinson’s Disease Rehabilitation Program aims to lengthen the time patients can remain active and able to live at home. In the process, we also seek to enhance their quality of life. 

Our care team can help you understand how to manage your disorder so you feel as good as possible. We combine your pharmacological care with physical, occupational, and speech therapy that can improve motor and non-motor functions and help you communicate. If you live with Parkinson's disease, rehabilitation offers many benefits:

  • Aims to delay symptom
  • Increases your strength and endurance
  • Improves balance
  • Provides general fitness
  • Helps manage pain
  • Elevates your energy level
  • Boosts your mood
