Parkinson's disease

Parkinson’s disease is a degenerative disorder with no known cure.  Neurologists are able to use their resources to slow down/fight the progression of the disease down but still can not resolve the disease.

They also have better methods for achieving faster, more accurate diagnoses. For more information about surgical treatments, including alternative therapies, we recommend the lab of Dimitri Krainc at Northwestern Medicine. The progression of Parkinson’s varies in every patient. The process may be slower in one patient from the next.  There is no real rhyme or reason for this.

Parkinson's disease

    It is also suggested that cognitive exercises such as; crossword puzzles, math problems, reading challenging novels, socializing, interacting with friends, and debating and discussing ideas show tremendous improvements.
