The symptoms of Parkinson's disease vary from person to person, with early signs often going unnoticed because they can be very mild.
The symptoms usually begin on one side and can progress to the other side.
If you have Parkinson's massage therapy CAN help. It is not a cure, but can alleviate the symptoms to some degree. Massage therapy has ben proven beneficial to reducing the symptoms of depression, which at times is more problematic than the other symptoms, actually increasing the intensity of the other symptoms.
Chiropractic care can also be used in conjunction with massage to gain the most benefit. The muscles are attached to the spine and bones. The tightness of the muscles will have a direct impact on pulling the spine and joints out of proper alignment, causing an increase in the pain symptoms.
Muscular Injury Specialist works with Dr. Larry Johnson, chiropractor. Dr. Johnson utilizes the Activator Method of adjustment. This is a gentle, yet effective method of adjusting subluxations of the spine and joints. Dr. Johnson accepts most major medical plans, including medicare. If your plan allows for chiropractic and massage, treatment can be billed through the doctors office.
For those whose policies do not allow for massage, Muscular Injury Specialist offers quality massage at affordable prices. Half hour massage treatments are $20.00.
