Deep Brain Stimulation
In January 2018, the Parkinson’s Disease and Movement Disorder Center introduced what is heralded as one of the most remarkable breakthroughs in the treatment of movement disorders, the Deep Brain Stimulation (DBS). DBS is a procedure that uses a surgically implanted, battery-operated device to precise areas in the brain that control movement. In the past year alone, six patients with advanced movement disorders underwent this procedure and were given the chance to re-claim their lives.
In celebration of the World Parkinson’s Day and the launch of SPARK – a Support Group for Parkinson’s Disease patients and caregivers, the Parkinson’s Disease and Movement Disorder Center created an instructional video for Parkinson’s Dance. This video contains exercises and movements for patients with Parkinson’s Disease (PD). This video aims to empower the patients who face the challenges associated with the disease, through a dance with age appropriate music and movements that will help them develop focus on body rhythm, coordination, and strength while having fun.
