What is Parkinson’s?

downloadParkinson’s disease is a movement disorder that is chronic and progressive, meaning that symptoms continue and worsen over time. Its major symptoms vary from person to person, but can include tremor, slowness of movements, limb stiffness, and difficulties with gait and balance. The cause of the disease is unknown, and although there is presently no cure, there are treatment options such as medication and surgery to manage the symptoms.

Most people who get Parkinson’s are aged 50 or over but younger people can get it too. People with Parkinson’s don’t have enough of a chemical called dopamine because specific nerve cells inside their brain have died. It is not known why these cells die. Without dopamine people can find that their movements become slower so it takes longer to do things. This can make everyday activities, such as eating, getting dressed, or using a phone or computer, difficult or frustrating.

How many people are affected by Parkinson’s?

  • Every hour, someone in the UK is told they have Parkinson’s.
  • One person in every 500 has Parkinson’s. That’s about 127,000 people in the UK.
  • Most people who get Parkinson’s are aged 50 or over but younger people can get it too.

How is Parkinson’s treated?

In most patients, Parkinson’s disease is “sporadic,” which means it occurs in someone for no clear reason. Less than 10% of patients with Parkinson’s disease have a form that runs in the family. There is currently no cure for Parkinson’s, but there are a range of treatments to control the symptoms and maintain quality of life. Medication is the main treatment for Parkinson’s. Drugs work by restoring the level of dopamine in the brain or mimicking its actions, but can have side effects, including abnormal involuntary movements (dyskinesia) and impulsive and compulsive behaviour.

Deep brain stimulation (DBS) is a type of surgery where electrodes are implanted deep inside specific parts of the brain. The electrodes are connected to a small battery under the skin in the person’s chest, to generate electrical signals to stimulate the brain. If successful, DBS can provide significant improvement in an individual’s symptoms and quality of life, but DBS is not a suitable option for everyone with Parkinson’s.

Physical therapies such as physiotherapy, speech and language therapy and occupational therapy have an important role to play in the management of Parkinson’s.

How can Adaptawear help?

Parkinson’s presents a number of difficulties with dressing but some of the more common Adaptawearproblems are associated with balance, dexterity and tremors.  Adaptawear have a wide range of products suited for Parkinson’s patients.

Our Elasticated Trousers and Skirts are ideal to slide on and off easily.  Also you may find our Fasten-Free Tops and Magnetic Men’s Shirts comfortable and easy to put on.

For more information please visit www.parkinsons.org.uk or read our latest factsheet on all things to do with Parkinson’s.
