Parkinson's Disease Management

Why do you choose the Vitality by design for the Parkinson’s Physiotherapy?

Parkinson’s symptoms can be managed with proper Physiotherapy movement evaluation, diagnosis and treatment, and rehabilitation including physical, task oriented therapy and speech therapies.

Our expert physiotherapists will assess the patient condition and identify the affected movements, which are slow due to neuromuscular spasticity (tightness) and postural instability to advocate the model of a task specific approach to train the patient everyday living.

We review the treatment regularly and adjust according to the changing constellation of movement disorders that present as the disease progress.
