The Victory Summit - Motor Symptoms and Parkinson's - Virtual Event by The Davis Phinney Foundation
Parkinson’s is officially classified as a movement disorder because it involves damage to the areas of the brain, nerves, and muscles that influence the speed, quality, fluency, and ease of movement. Motor (or movement-related) symptoms are usually the most visible elements of Parkinson’s, and when you have motor symptoms that are not well managed or don’t always lessen with medication, your quality of life can suffer.
Join us on Friday, June 24, 2022 as we take a deep dive into the different types of motor symptoms and what causes them, medication management strategies, how to manage motor symptoms during OFF times, how to move well and reduce the risk of falling, and more.
In addition, we will feature short movement breaks that fit the event’s theme and that will show you how to move to manage these symptoms. By the end of the event, you will not only know more about the various motor symptoms you or your loved one may experience, but you will also know how you can take action to manage these symptoms, improve your quality of life, and live well with Parkinson’s today.
