Parkinson’s Disease is a progressive and, as yet, untreatable degenerative disorder. With symptoms presenting from as early as the age of 40, getting the right Parkinson’s Disease Treatments London as soon as possible can make a massive difference in the quality of life for, not only the patient but also their family.
Diagnosis of Parkinson’s
The symptoms of Parkinson’s can begin to appear long before a formal diagnosis is made. The symptoms can be subtle, to begin with. If you have any concerns that you might have these symptoms, even if they are mild, then consulting with a neurologist can give you the information you need.
It might be an early diagnosis that can help you manage the symptoms for longer, or it might be the news that you don’t need to worry.
Parkinson’s Disease Treatments London
There are three different approaches to treatment for Parkinson’s.
- Symptomatic treatments focus on managing the treatments.
- Protective treatments aim to reduce further damage.
- Restorative treatments hope to restore lost functionality.
There are a number of effective symptomatic treatments, but they all have limitations. An experienced neurologist can guide you through all the treatment options to help you select the best one for your situation.
There are a number of treatments that make many claims about offering protection or restoration. With all the promises of hope out there, it is best to focus on treatments that have strong evidential support. An experienced neurologist is in the best position to be able to guide you to the best treatment option.
Parkinson’s causes issues beyond just the physical symptoms. Dementia, depression, and sleep problems are common symptoms. By working with an experienced neurologist, you can ensure that treatment is addressing all the issues.
