Neurodegenerative Disorders such as Alzheimer’s and Parkinson’s Disease affects millions of people across the globe. The mentioned diseases are the two most common neurodegenerative diseases, both of which are progressive in nature. There is, unfortunately, no cure for either Alzheimer’s or Parkinson’s disease as of now and it only worsens with time.

Alzheimer’s Disease is a neurodegenerative disorder that is a common form of dementia and is mostly seen in people above the age of 80. Dementia is a syndrome having symptoms such as loss of memory, thinking, and behavior. People suffering from Alzheimer’s tend to forget everything, even the methods of performing the daily activities and even their own perception. Being a progressive disease, Alzheimer’s is a condition in which the brain cells of the affected individual dies and thereby, their brain shrinks. As the disorder progresses, the patient becomes unable to perform basic activities required for maintaining their hygiene, and therefore, need to be provided with special care.

Pain

Parkinson’s Disease also belongs to neurodegenerative disorder and therefore, affects the neurons in some way. The patient suffering from it experiences difficulty in walking, maintaining balance, and coordination. There are also tremors and stiffness in the muscles. Unfortunately, there is no known cure for Parkinson’s, and is seen in adults older than 60. The main reason behind Parkinson’s is the decrease in the amount of dopamine in the body which in turn is due to the loss of neurons producing the chemical. The disease is progressive and the brain cells throughout the disease keep dying until the entire brain dies.

Although both Alzheimer’s and Parkinson’s have no cure, there are treatments to help people suffering from them. One of the treatments being physiotherapy.

Physiotherapy as a treatment for Alzheimer’s or Parkinson’s

Alzheimer’s and Parkinson’s both affect the basic movement of the individual making it difficult for them to do their normal routine. This disability can be helped through physiotherapy.

Physical therapy involves exercises, activities, massages, and other methods of therapy that assist the individual in improving their functioning. This, therefore, supports the people suffering from Alzheimer’s/Parkinson’s to do basic activities which are affected by the disease.

We at Theracure, believe that with active movements and practice, the person suffering from neurodegenerative disorders can learn to go through their basic activities. It is very difficult for the person to go through these diseases, as it disables them from living their life normally and we help them go through it slowly, to build up their confidence and support them throughout their routine.

Our brain is the part that controls everything and when this is affected, the result is catastrophic for the person. Through physiotherapy, we try to assist the individual to go about their basic activities and help them make their life better.
