Understanding Movement Disorders
Parkinson’s Disease

Parkinson’s disease is a chronic and progressive neurological disorder that primarily affects movement. It is caused by the degeneration of dopamine-producing neurons in the brain, leading to a range of motor and non-motor symptoms.

Symptoms

Motor Symptoms

  • Bradykinesia (slowness of movement)
  • Resting tremors (trembling at rest)
  • Muscle rigidity (stiffness)
  • Postural instability (balance problems)
  • Freezing of gait (difficulty initiating movement)

Non-motor Symptoms

  • Cognitive impairment
  • Mood changes
  • Sleep disturbances
  • Autonomic dysfunction (e.g., constipation, urinary problems)
Diagnosis

Diagnosis of Parkinson’s disease involves a thorough medical history, neurological examination, and sometimes additional tests such as brain imaging (MRI or CT scan) to rule out other conditions.

Treatment Options

Medication Management

  • Levodopa-carbidopa: Enhances dopamine levels in the brain to alleviate motor symptoms.
  • Dopamine agonists: Mimic the effects of dopamine in the brain.
  • MAO-B inhibitors: Inhibit the breakdown of dopamine in the brain.

Deep Brain Stimulation (DBS)

  • Surgical implantation of electrodes in specific brain regions to modulate abnormal neuronal activity and improve motor function.

Physical Therapy

  • Tailored exercise programs to improve mobility, flexibility, and balance.
  • Occupational therapy to assist with activities of daily living.

Speech Therapy

  • Speech-language pathologists can address speech, voice, and swallowing difficulties associated with Parkinson’s disease.
Other Movement Disorders

Dystonia

  • Involuntary muscle contractions leading to repetitive or twisting movements and abnormal postures.
  • Treatment may include medications, botulinum toxin injections, and deep brain stimulation.

Essential Tremor

  • Rhythmic, involuntary shaking of the hands, arms, head, or voice.
  • Treatment options include medications, botulinum toxin injections, and focused ultrasound therapy.

Chorea

  • Hyperkinetic movements characterized by random, irregular, and involuntary movements.
  • Treatment may involve medications to reduce chorea and improve motor control.

Tics

  • Sudden, repetitive, non-rhythmic movements or vocalizations.
  • Treatment options include behavioral therapies and medications to manage symptoms.
Comprehensive Treatment Approach

At Neuro Foundation, we offer a multidisciplinary approach to the management of movement disorders, tailored to each patient’s specific needs. Our comprehensive treatment plans may include a combination of medication management, physical therapy, speech therapy, and surgical interventions such as deep brain stimulation.
