Parkinson's Disease

Parkinson’s Disease is a neurodegenerative disease that is caused by the dying of cells in the body that carry dopamine. Symptoms of Parkinson’s typically include: tremor, slowness and stiffness, impaired balance, and rigidity of muscles.  Other symptoms that occur over time are: fatigue, soft speech, problems with handwriting, reduced posture, constipation, and sleep disturbances. 

Swallowing issues and reduced ability to project your voice are often common areas that can be improved with the aid of a Speech-Language Pathologist. After a thorough assessment, a treatment program specific to your needs would be designed.
