  • Parkinson's treatment options begin with early diagnosis

    Dec 14, 2018 | Posted by the Editor, SeniorInsider

    The symptoms of Parkinson’s tend to worsen as the condition progresses. Therefore, it is important to get quality Parkinson’s health care as early as possible.  This disease impacts the nervous system and it effects the movements of the body.   While there are a few early signs of the illness that are obvious, such as a slight tremor in one of the hands, there are other signs to watch for as well.  If you determine that you may have signs that point to Parkinson’s, it is important to get to the doctor as soon as possible to discuss potential Parkinson’s treatment options.
