What is Parkinson’s Disease?

It can be defined as a progressive neurological disorder in which brain cells weaken or die. Parkinson’s disease occurs due to death/impairment of neurons in the brain that produce dopamine (a neurotransmitter), however it is still unknown why these cells die.

Classic symptoms of Parkinson’s disease include negative changes in the behaviour and movement of an individual: symptoms are negligible at first and increase gradually. With the passage of time; walking and speech are negatively affected – along with other possible symptoms.

Men are more susceptible to Parkinson’s disease than women, however women can also be affected. Majority of the time; age is the highest risk factor of Parkinson’s disease, symptoms of most patients tend to develop around 60, however a minority experienced symptoms before the age of 50.

Treatment can help in providing relief from symptoms, however it can never be fully cured. Medication is normally the first line treatment of Parkinson’s disease. Alternative treatment for Parkinson’s include surgery and therapies such as physiotherapy and laser therapy.

Parkinson’s Symptoms Stages

Symptoms are generally broken down into 5 stages of Parkinson’s disease using the Hoehn and Yahr stages system for Parkinson’s disease. Stages 1-2 are classified as early-stage, 2-3 as mid-stage and 4-5 as advanced-stage. The 5 stages of Parkinson’s disease are discussed:

Stage 1

Early stages of Parkinson’s disease show symptoms that include slight changes in movement, posture and facial expressions, and may go unnoticed at this stage. Tremors and movement symptoms typically impact one side of the body. Daily tasks are not heavily impacted during this stage.

Stage 2

Movement, posture, facial expressions and tremors worsen, which may now affect both sides of the body. Speech may also be affected. Daily tasks are now slightly impacted, and they may take more time to complete by themselves.

Stage 3

Symptoms are similar to stage 2, however additional symptoms appear. This includes loss of balance, slower movements and decreased reflexes, making it more difficult to complete daily tasks – however still manageable by the individual.

Stage 4

Previous symptoms are now severe – it is possible for the individual to stand, however movement may require a walker. Individuals in stage 4 show significant reductions in their capabilities for daily activities and it is not safe for them to live alone, as falls are quite common.

Stage 5

End stage Parkinson’s disease symptoms include the inability to stand or walk. Hallucinations, delusions and dementia are also quite common in the last stages of Parkinson’s disease. The individual is required to be in a wheelchair or may even be bedridden. Permanent assistance is required.

Parkinson’s Disease Causes

Parkinson’s disease is a neurological disorder in which brain cells gradually weaken or even die. Many symptoms of Parkinson’s disease are due to loss of neuron functioning. The main cause of Parkinson’s disease is not known but the following factors are referred as triggers:

  • Genetic mutations
  • Gene variations
  • Toxins
  • Environmental triggers
  • Lewy bodies
  • Microscopic markers
  • Whispered protein

Parkinson’s Disease Symptoms

Early stages of Parkinson’s disease may not show any observable symptoms, but gradually the symptoms begin to show up on one side of the body. The symptoms of Parkinson’s disease are:

  • Tremor in the limb
  • Slowed movement
  • Dragging feet
  • Rigid muscles
  • Painful motion
  • Limited motion
  • Impaired posture
  • Imbalance
  • Unconscious movements
  • Blinking
  • Speech changes
  • Writing changes

Parkinson’s Disease Treatment

Laser therapy can be classed as a non-pharmacological treatment of Parkinson’s disease. Laser treatment for Parkinson’s disease has shown several benefits; neuroprotection – reducing the rate of neuron degeneration which is the leading cause of Parkinson’s disease. Laser therapy also improves symptoms and improves locomotive behaviour of the individual.

Laser therapy has been shown to increase cellular metabolism of the patient, which promotes the healing process of the targeted area. Laser therapy has also been shown to interact with the nerves of the targeted site in a way which reduces pain experienced. This interaction also releases endorphins which reduces the painful sensations at the site. These interactions have a combined effect that result in pain relief starting from minutes after the first treatment to long-term pain relief.

Our technology is equipped with providing pain relief and management of many complex medical disorders – including many neurological disorders. The treatments are non-invasive, the procedure is painless and you do not experience any side effects.
