Parkinson’s disease is a neurological condition that causes tremors, weakness, and difficulty walking, balancing, and coordinating movements.
Parkinson’s disease develops when the neurons in a region of the brain that regulate movement get damaged. These neurons normally generate dopamine, an essential brain chemical. As neurons get damaged they produce less dopamine, resulting in Parkinson’s movement problems. Scientists are also unsure what causes dopamine-producing cells to collapse.
Symptoms of Parkinson’s disease normally appear progressively and worsen over time. People with Parkinson’s disease can have trouble walking and speaking as the disease progresses. They can also experience psychological and behavioral changes, as well as sleep disturbances.
Due to the nature of the disease, very basic, everyday functioning of the individual can get affected. From being unable to drive to needing help while being fed, they become reliant on someone else to take care of them. Research has also shown that a majority of patients with Parkinson’s also develop psychological problems, depression in particular. Thus, focusing on paychological wellbeing is crucial to improve the overall quality of life.
Alonside this, neuropsychological rehabilitation also helps improve their cognitive functions, therein improving their confidence and sense of self.
Thus, a holistic approach is essential with dealing with such a problem.
