Parkinson

Parkinson’s disease is a brain disease. People who suffer from it may suffer from various symptoms, making the disease very complex. No one patient has the same symptoms as another.

Common symptoms

  • Tremor of the hands, legs, chin or tongue
  • Movements slowing down (bradykinesia), difficulty with starting movements (akinesia) and the interruption of automatic movements (hypokinesia)
  • Stiffness of muscles (rigidity)
  • Posture- and balance problems, sometimes falling if the disease progresses
  • “freezing” of the legs during walking, making the feet seem stuck to the floor.

Besides the above symptoms, it is possible for a wide range of other symptoms to occur, like thinking slowly, reduced sense of smell, sleeping disorders, obstipation, mood problems and the change of sexual desires By no means do all of these symptoms occur in every patient. In addition, the severity of the complaints and the course of the illness differs from patient to patient. This is especially true for patients with conditions that are like Parkinson’s disease, the so-called atypical Parkinsonisms.

Two of our therapists are members of the network Parkinsonnet.
