Comprehensive Parkinson’s disease treatment in Yeshwanthpur

Parkinson's disease is a neurological ailment that produces unintentional or uncontrollable movements such as shaking, stiffness, and difficulties with balance and coordination.

Symptoms normally appear gradually and progress over time. People may have trouble walking and talking as the condition advances. They may also have mental and behavioral changes, sleep issues, depression, memory problems, and weariness.

While everybody is at risk of acquiring Parkinson's, several research findings suggest that men are more affected than women. Although the majority of persons with Parkinson's disease develop symptoms beyond the age of 60, about 5% to 10% develop the disease before the age of 50. Early-onset Parkinson's disease is frequently inherited, although not always, and some forms have been linked to specific gene alterations.

The most noticeable signs and symptoms of Parkinson's disease appear when nerve cells in the basal ganglia, a region of the brain that controls movement, become damaged or die. Normally, these nerve cells, or neurons, create dopamine, a key brain neurotransmitter. When neurons die, less dopamine is produced, resulting in the movement impairments associated with the condition.

Treatment Procedures

  • Botulinum toxin injections for dystonia and spasticity - Dystonia is a neurological movement disease characterized by twisting and repetitive movements or aberrant postures induced by repeated or persistent muscle contractions. It is caused by the brain communicating increased muscular activity.

  • Botox is effective for the treatment of movement disorders; however, we must first understand what Botox is and how it affects the body. Botox is a neurotoxin generated by the bacterium Clostridium botulinum. This neurotoxin is classified as A-G since it comes in seven different forms. Currently, only type A (BTX-A) and, on occasion, type B is used for routine treatment.

  • Because BTX-A is neurotoxic, when injected into a specific muscle, it disrupts neuromuscular transmission. This causes local paralysis of the afflicted muscle or muscles. As a result, it is an excellent therapy option for focal dystonia and spasticity.

  • Deep brain stimulation therapy for Parkinson's disease and other movement disorders.- Deep brain stimulation (DBS) is a neurosurgical operation that treats movement problems linked to Parkinson's disease (PD), essential tremor, dystonia, and other neurological illnesses using implanted electrodes and electrical stimulation. Book an appointment to consult with the experts regarding deep brain stimulation therapy.

  • While DBS might be life-changing for some, it is not for everyone. This medicine is approved for persons with Parkinson's disease who have had the disease for at least four years and who benefit from medication but have motor problems, such as large periods when symptoms reappear because the medication isn't working properly or dyskinesia.

  • DBS is primarily used to alleviate motor complaints such as stiffness, slowness, and tremor. It is less effective for imbalance, gait freezing (the abrupt inability to move while walking), or non-motor symptoms. DBS is not suggested for persons with dementia since it may worsen thinking or memory issues.
