What You Need to Know About Parkinson's, Alzheimer's and Dementia
Alzheimer's/Dementia (AD) and Parkinson's Disease (PD) are two of the most common age-related neurological diseases. Age-related neurological diseases, also called neuro-degenerative diseases, are a result of genes and inflammation, with the brain being the victim of both. Unlike stroke or TBI, these diseases progress over decades, and offer tons of warning signs including: stiffness, constipation, loss of smell, diabetes, slowness, poor balance, tremor, disorientation, forgetfulness, emotionality, and apathy. The sooner these signs are recognized and treatment occurs, the greater the chance to improve an individual's quality of life. Do not lose hope -- we can help.
How We Treat Parkinson's, Alzheimer's and Dementia
Unfortunately, at this time, once an age-related degenerative disorder is diagnosed, it is not curable. By recognizing the warning signs and understanding the disease process, we devise treatment strategies to reduce inflammation through therapies to increase oxygen intake and nutritional recommendations, and prescribe neurological therapies to help restore and maintain function and quality of life. By understanding that the brain is capable of plasticity at ALL ages, we partner with our patients and work hard to try to build these new connections faster than the disease can degenerate them, in turn, slowing progression and enhancing both function and quality of life.
