Physiotherapy and Exercise for Parkinsons
At Platinum Physio, we offer a range of services to help people who have been diagnosed with Parkinson’s Disease continue to exercise, stay active and live the life they love.
Parkinson’s Disease is a neurological condition which affects the body’s supply of the neurotransmitter, dopamine. As a result, a person with Parkinson’s Disease can present with reduced mobility, rigid muscles, tremor, slow and shuffling gait, body pain as well as issues with speech, mood and dexterity.
Significant research has now shown that certain types of exercise are crucial in the treatment of Parkinson’s Disease to assist in managing symptoms as well as to slow the progression of the disease.
Here at Platinum Physio, our experienced Physios will assess to see how Parkinson’s Disease specifically affects your physical movements and will guide you to manage your symptoms. By translating the latest research into education, exercise and rehabilitation, specific treatment and health promotion we can tailor your care into 1 on 1 treatments or group exercise sessions.
Our group sessions are suitable for people with Parkinson’s through almost all stages of the disease, and are an excellent way to remain active and meet others who have been diagnosed with this condition.
If you would like more information on the program, and whether this is right for you, please call us on 8554 0111, and ask to speak to one of our Physiotherapists.
If you are a Neurologist, Doctor or Healthcare Practitioner, you can refer a patient to Platinum Physio by sending a fax to 8669 4299.
