A detailed guide to Parkinson’s Disease

Parkinson’s Disease is one of the most common neurodegenerative conditions in the world. According to Parkinson’s Foundation, more than 10 million people worldwide are living with the disease.
For people affected by Parkinson’s Disease, getting a thorough consultation and proper treatment from a world-class neuro and stem cell and research center like Plexus in Hyderabad and Bangalore is the best option. Our treatments can keep the symptoms under control and significantly improve quality of life. But before you take a step towards your Parkinson’s Disease treatment, read through our guide to learn about the essential facts about Parkinson’s Disease.

Decoding Parkinson’s Disease

Decoding Parkinson’s Disease

Parkinson’s Disease is caused by the death of nerve cells in a part of the brain called Substantia Nigra, leading to reduced production of the hormone dopamine. Dopamine is essential for the Basal Ganglia to work, which is the part of the brain that controls movement. When dopamine levels go down, it leads to tremors and stiff muscles that are characteristic of Parkinson’s patients.

Symptoms of Parkinson’s Disease

The symptoms of Parkinson’s Disease are usually manageable at first and then become progressively worse, with most patients having to rely on professional caregivers during the later stages of the disease. Some of the most common symptoms include:
Tremors in the limbs or jaw
Slowing down of body movements (Bradykinesia)
Muscle stiffness and rigidity
Painful muscle cramps (Dystonia)
Unsteady gait
Slurred or indistinct speech
Memory problems

Causes of Parkinson’s Disease

The cause of Parkinson’s Disease is unknown. However, several factors play a role according to leading scientists, including:

  • Genes: Researchers have identified specific genetic mutations that can cause Parkinson’s Disease. But these are uncommon except in rare cases with many family members affected by Parkinson’s Disease.
  • Environmental triggers: Exposure to certain toxins or environmental factors may increase the risk of later Parkinson’s Disease, but the risk is relatively small.
  • Age: Young adults rarely experience Parkinson’s Disease. It ordinarily begins in middle or late life, and the risk increases with age. People usually develop the disease around age 60 or older.

Treatments for Parkinson’s Disease

Several rehabilitative treatments can help you and your loved ones with Parkinson’s Disease achieve desired results in minimum possible time. A holistic treatment and rehabilitation program would include the following:
Stem Cell Therapy

Stem Cell Therapy

Stem Cell Therapy is proving to be the best treatment option for patients with Parkinson’s Disease due to its success in providing relief without any surgery or side effects of drugs. This form of regenerative medicine uses autologous mesenchymal stem cells from the patient’s bone marrow to repair the damaged cells within their body. These stem cells are then transplanted into the patient’s central nervous system, where they replicate the properties of the degenerated cells of the substantia nigra. As a result, the Parkinson’s symptoms gradually go away with time.

Regenerative Rehabilitation Program

A comprehensive Regenerative Rehabilitation Program helps to maximize functional ability and minimize secondary complications of patients with Parkinson’s Disease. The main aim of the program is to help patients perform daily activities and maintain quality of life without help, as much as possible.
A well-designed Parkinson’s Disease rehabilitation program would include the following:
