Parkinson’s Disease is a disorder of the nervous system that progressively gets worse over time. While the most common and well-known sign of Parkinson’s disease is a hand tremor, the disorder also commonly causes stiffness and slowing of movement. Parkinson’s disease symptoms worsen over time as the disorder progresses, and often times those with this disease need professional care. At Sovereign Rehabilitation, we help those who suffer from Parkinson’s disease manage their symptoms and achieve greater functionality to improve their quality of life.
At Sovereign Rehabilitation, we are a provider of comprehensive physical and rehabilitation therapy that features the industry’s premier physical, manual occupational, and certified hand therapists. Our therapists are specially trained to work with patients with Parkinson’s disease. Our rehabilitation programs focus on treating symptoms such as tremors, muscle stiffness, limited range of motion, loss of balance and posture, and slowed movements. The therapists at Sovereign Rehabilitation will partner with you and your physician to develop a customized and comprehensive treatment plan around your physician’s orders and your personal goals.
There is no cure for Parkinson’s disease, but ongoing aerobic exercise and physical therapy that focuses on balance and stretching has proven incredibly effective at lessening the symptoms of this disease. At Sovereign Rehabilitation, our entire staff offers compassionate care for patients with Parkinson’s disease. Our occupational therapists can work with you to find techniques to make daily life – such as dressing, eating, bathing, and walking – easier. Our physical therapists can work with you to avoid falls and losing your balance. If you or a loved one has Parkinson’s disease, please contact Sovereign Rehabilitation. We look forward to serving you with exceptional, individualized physical and rehabilitation therapy.
