Parkinsonism is a collection of symptoms that include tremor, rigidity, slowness of movement and imbalance.
The most common cause of parkinsonism is idiopathic Parkinson disease. Other causes include stroke, medication side effects, and rarer neurological conditions.
Our neurologists will take a detail history and exam of the parkinsonism and related symptoms. They may decide to obtain an MRI or other specialized imaging if appropriate.
There are many medications that can control the symptoms of Parkinson disease. Our neurologists will discuss what is the best option for you. Physical, occupational, and speech therapy may also be helpful.
