Managing Parkinson’s disease In Dublin, Ireland

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, and treatments for this condition are often expensive and not covered by insurance companies. That is why we offer a range of treatments at our Dublin, Ireland clinic designed to help relieve some of the symptoms associated with Parkinson’s disease while also improving quality of life.

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.

Our Chiropractors and Physiotherapists will identify what the cause of your disease is and provide specialized treatments and care.

Physio care for Parkinson’s disease

Physiotherapy is a relatively new treatment for Parkinson’s disease which has been shown to be highly effective at managing the symptoms associated with this condition. Physiotherapists are specially trained in working with people who have neurological conditions, and they will often use manual therapy techniques to help relieve stiffness or pain.

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 physiotherapy exercises in their overall plan to help relieve stiffness, pain, and immobility.

Exercise therapy is a highly effective way to help manage symptoms and improve overall function. A physiotherapist will be able to recommend the best exercise program for you based on your specific condition, they can also prescribe certain exercises that have been shown to be especially beneficial at managing Parkinson’s disease.
