Marcus will assess you at home or refer you to a Neuro Physiotherapy specialist in Parkinson’s that he works closely with should he feel you would benefit more. The assessment will show how Parkinson’s disease is impacting your everyday function. Treatment goals will then be set with you and those close to you to ensure you reach your maximum physical potential. Treatment will be centred on the following:
- Active and passive range of movement exercises to increase muscle activity, making transfers and walking easier to achieve.
- Muscle stretching exercises to keep joints flexible.
- Exercises to help relax rigid muscles and joints to maintain a good posture and make movements smooth and efficient.
