DMU Grand Rounds: Parkinson's Disease
Two attendance options:
Parkinson's Disease is a progressive disorder that causes central nervous system degeneration and unintended neuromuscular symptoms such as tremors, stiffness, and difficulty with balance and coordination. It is important that individuals with Parkinson's Disease are physically active to help slow symptom progression. Participation in specialized movement programs can maintain and even improve loss of central nervous system function. Patients with Parkinson's Disease should be referred to movement specialists in disciplines such as physical therapy and occupational therapy to maintain their ability to keep moving and ensure the best functional outcome for as long as possible.
DMU faculty, staff, students, residents, and the medical community.
