Parkinson's Disease

Our goal is to help you get the most out of every day and empower you to fight back against Parkinson's.

Parkinson's disease (PD) is much more than a movement disorder. In addition to affecting balance and mobility, PD can impact skills such as thinking, talking, swallowing, emotional and behavior control, writing and self-care. It may also cause changes in bodily functions resulting in new set of challenges such as dizziness, fatigue, impaired sleep or digestive disturbances.

Parkinsons Class

Whether you are in the early or advanced stages of Parkinson's disease, NeuroRehab and Balance Center has a team of experts with specialized training to help you get the most out of each day including:


Parkinsons

We will create a treatment plan specific to your needs and work closely with physicians to provide feedback on the effectiveness of medications as they relate to your function. You will learn strategies to deal with daily obstacles from tremors and decreased balance to swallowing problems and fatigue.

The expanding knowledge of rehabilitation techniques and improvements in medical interventions are giving new hope to patients and families living with PD. Research suggests that exercise programs may actually work to delay the progression of symptoms. It is highly recommended that rehab begin at the time of diagnosis. From initial diagnosis to advanced disease, rehab can be beneficial throughout the course of the disease. Our team is passionate about empowering you with knowledge and skills to help you face and overcome the challenges of PD throughout your life.

Testimonials

Hal
"My experience at NeuroRehab and Balance Center has been outstanding. My therapists went out of their way to motivate me and helped me achieve the goals that were important to me and improve my life. They tailored my program to address the problems from Parkinson's disease and concentrated on specific exercises that were most beneficial to me. I recommend NeuroRehab and Balance Center wholeheartedly; not only for their technical expertise, but also for their cheerful and kind manner in the way they treat their patients every day. Hats off to their dedication and service!"

"My wife and I have been so impressed with the quality of care, the numerous types of treatment available and the outstanding technicians employed at NeuroRehab and Balance Center. The patience and expertise of my PTs instilled confidence and their personalities and humor made my struggles more bearable. My occupational therapists were so pleasant and anticipated my needs which have already made it easier for me to manage at home. Thanks to my speech therapist, I am talking louder and have already had comments from many people about how much louder I speak. After I completed my therapy, I improved enough to participate in the Delay the Disease exercise classes. The instructor does an excellent job of focusing on individual capabilities and needs and the class utilizes so many things I have learned. In addition to my interactions with my therapists, the reception staff and observations of other technicians convinced me of their commitment to high standards. I do not think I could have found a better program."

-Francis

"I was diagnosed with Parkinson disease in November of 2014. I didn't know what was going to happen to me. Then, I was sent here to NeuroRehab and Balance Center. Once I started the therapy, it was life changing for me. I feel more confident in things I am doing. The staff was encouraging and I can't say enough about them. They helped me get back to what I love to do, play golf! I will continue my therapy at home and once again I thank all of the staff."
