Parkinson’s disease is a progressive neurological disorder that affects millions of people around the world.

It can be difficult to live with Parkinson’s, that is why we offer a range of management options at our Dublin clinic designed to help to manage and slow down the progression impairment associated with Parkinson’s Disease, in turn improving quality of life for our clients and their families.

Parkinson's Disease

What Causes Condition Parkinson’s Disease?

Parkinson’s disease is a degenerative neurological disorder that can affect anyone, although it has been diagnosed most commonly in people over the age of 60.

Parkinson’s occurs when nerve cells start to die off or are damaged throughout the brain and central nervous system. The main areas affected by this damage include an area called the substantia nigra which plays a role in reward and movements as well as the basal ganglia.

These areas of the brain are responsible for controlling motor function, which is why Parkinson’s disease can cause movement disorders such as shaking or stiffness that worsen over time.

Chiropractic care for Parkinson’s Disease

Chiropractic care is another popular treatment for Parkinson’s Disease, which has been shown to be highly effective at managing symptoms. Chiropractors will typically use spinal manipulation or adjustments (center-based chiropractic), massage therapy, and physical therapy exercises in their overall plan to help relieve stiffness, pain, and immobility.
