Stiffness and tremors are the most characteristic symptoms of the patient when he arrives at our clinic. It is important to know the extent to how these symptoms manifest and the posible causes that may trigger them:
-the patient could be taking different drugs and medications. It is very common that he´s given excessive medication to alleviate the tremor or stiffness, however it may the cause to many other adverse side effects.
– that the patient suffers from other pathologies besides Parkinson’s.
Parkinson’s symptoms greatly affect the freedom of the patient as they stop him from having a productive life. Severe rigidity or tremors can physically impede work and/or social activities.
The consequences of this isolation and this lack of autonomy are projected at an emotional level, hence the importance of neuro-psychological treatment in parallel to the therapy with the permanent needle that is offered in our center.
IMPORTANT: Parkinson’s treatment should be multidisciplinary to treat all aspects affected by the disease and improve the quality of life of the patient.
