Most people associate Parkinson’s disease (PD) with tremors, a motor symptom. However, non-motor symptoms are common and can be more troublesome and disabling than motor symptoms. They can include cognitive changes, mood and sleep disorders, autonomic symptoms or weight loss.
Like people with other chronic diseases, people with Parkinson’s disease (PD) often struggle with mental health difficulties.
Topics include: Virtual Reality training for Parkinson's, a letter from the CEO, Anxiety triggers, top questions from Ask the Doc, What's Hot in Parkinson's, "I Am Ali" Festival with Louisville's first Moving Day® walk, and the five top planned gifts to make an impact.
