Treatments and therapies for Parkinson's

Woman with Parkinson's and her loved one talking to a Parkinson's specialist

My specialist is very easy to talk to and allows me to take an active part in my treatment. He makes sure that I have the relevant information to decide.

Drugs are the main treatment used to manage the symptoms of Parkinson's, while research into finding a cure continues.

Every person with Parkinson's has a different experience of the condition. Your GP, specialist or Parkinson's nurse will aim to find the treatment that is best for you as an individual.

Surgical options are available for some people with Parkinson's, depending on their symptoms.

Therapists can help in dealing with daily life. Many people with Parkinson's find complementary therapies beneficial.
