Parkinson's Awareness Month

Did you know that Parkinson's symptoms include motor and non-motor symptoms. Motor symptoms are what we can see on the surface of movement, tremors, bradykinesia, rigidity, gait changes, balance changes, flat affect of the face. Non-motor symptoms include anxiety, depression, apathy, loneliness, sleep disorders, hallucinations, cognitive issues, constipation. People with Parkinson's also have dystonia (muscle cramping/spasms) and softness of voice. Studies show that exercise can help slow the progression and manage the symptoms.
