Parkinson's Disease is a neurological disorder relating to the death of the nerve cells in the brain which produce dopamine. It is a progressive degenerative disease which affects the area of the brain called substantia nigra due to which overall health deteriorates and symptoms increases as time progresses and dopamine production decreases in the brain. Few major symptoms of PD are tremors, slowness and difficulty of movement, rigidity, unstable posture etc. It has been noted that a number of people with PD have benefited from exercise, physical therapy, yoga and meditation on top of medical treatment. These non medical treatment options have helped people manage symptoms well and delay the progression of the disease.
There are different forms of exercises and physical therapy to help with its symptoms like unstable balance, gait impairment etc. Yoga and meditation helps manage symptoms like rigidity impaired movement etc better.
