Treating the unpredictable neurological progression that is Parkinson’s disease (PD) can seem random, complex, and overall difficult to manage. PD presents a host of challenges, such as changes in motor control and posture, onset of tremors, inability to initiate purposeful movement, and the mimicking of the disease from prescription drugs. Therapists have addressed such complications with traditional techniques such as movement-based approaches and compensatory strategies. However, there’s been an influx of evidence related to PD interventions showing effective methods and tools used by rehab professionals.
Let seasoned OTD, Robyn Otty, show you how cognitive rehabilitation, movement-based and non-traditional interventions fit together to influence a client’s posture, dynamic balance, initial movement, and ADLs. Review the most up-to-date literature and medical management to form successful outcomes with this population that can be used the very next day
