Parkinson’s Disease & Tremor Clinic
Parkinson’s disease and tremor are the two most common movement disorders to affect adults. There are many conditions that can be confused with Parkinson’s disease, and there are many causes of tremor. The best type of treatment depends largely on making the correct diagnosis.
Neurologists are medical specialists who concentrate on the diagnosis and treatment of conditions affecting the brain, spine and peripheral nerves. Some neurologists super-specialise in particular areas, and movement disorders is one of these. At Precision Brain Spine and Pain Centre, we believe that patients receive the best care when their specialists concentrate on a few areas of their field, rather than trying to be a ‘jack of all trades’.
Once Parkinson’s disease and Tremor are diagnosed, the treatment options need to be carefully considered. In recent years, treatment of these conditions has expanded beyond simply taking medications, something that neurologists traditionally have taken control of. Non-pharmacological treatments, specifically Deep Brain Stimulation (DBS), are now a real option for many patients with Parkinson’s disease and tremor.
Selecting and delivering the best treatment options for patient with Parkinson’s disease and tremor involves a tram approach. The team at Precision includes specialist neurologists, neurosurgeons, neuropsychologists, and psychiatrists. We believe that such a team approach maximises the chance of an excellent outcome and minimises the risks.
Our Specialized Treatment
'MOTOmed viva2 Parkinson' technology to treat Parkinson's Disease.
On basis of recent findings from Parkinson’s research, RECK medical devices developed, together with a group of scientist from the US, the MOTOmed movement therapy for Parkinson’s patients. The employment of special components enables motor supported leg movement, similar to normal cycling with up to 90 U/min. This way, the MOTOmed viva2 Parkinson enables the application of the new therapy method “Forced Exercise”.
Fast forced and supported movements may help to reduce tremor (contracting muscles), improve walking ability and to conduct normal movements with more purpose. An individually adapted training program ensures effective and simple training sessions. Parkinson’s patients can use the Parkinson’s therapy “Forced Exercise” easily and daily at home.
Besides as leg trainer, the MOTOmed viva2 Parkinson is also available as leg- and arm/upper body trainer. The MOTOmed arm-/upper body trainer can be swiveled in and out of the training area. The arm/upper body training strengthens the arm, upper body and shoulder muscles and reinforces the auxiliary respiratory muscles
