I have been conducting research the past 6 years on the various factors that cause symptoms of Parkinsons Disease the therapies that are helping people recover. The good news for you is that there are incredible resources that are available to you. Start listening to archives of the the Parkinsons Recovery Radio Show. You will discover a wealth of information and resources there. Any of the shows I have aired can be downloaded for free. Many of my guests give out their contact information so you can contact them directly for further input.

Parkinsons Recovery is sponsoring a Summit in Cincinnati Ohio June 22-23. Why not attend the Summit? You will discover a wealth of resources there.

Finally, you might consider taking daily baths with Epson salts which essentially are a form of magnesium. I am guessing the source of the problem may lie with a deficiency of magnesium in your body. You might discuss with your doctor the advisability of taking baths with Epson salts.

 

Help is available. You have taken the first important step by asking for it!

Spine Stretches For Back Problems

This video clip was filmed at the Parkinsons Recovery Summit in March, 2011. The suggestion that is offered responds to a question I asked for reports of any and all therapies people found had been helpful and effective. This explanation centers on a spine stretch that is treated with special equipment by a chiropractor. The machine that was used by the chiropractor to do the adjustments that is referenced in this discussion is a DRX9000C.
