Treatments for Muscle Tightness and Pain

Just joined your group, and want to know what is the best way to control muscle tightness and pain in the left lower back area. I recently started taking requip prescribed by my movement disorder neurologist starting on a low dosage to get my body used to it.

Any other suggestions? Nothing seems to be helping.




Just to clarify at the outset Paulette – I am a researcher type doctor (Ph.D.) not a medical doctor (MD) so I am not qualified to diagnose or treat medical conditions. I can report from a research point of view that magnesium has helped many people find relief from the symptoms you describe. A relaxing and inexpensive magnesium therapy is Epson salt baths.

Consider also finding an energy healer who has cranial sacral training.  You might well find an energetic therapy would provide significant benefit.

I also suggest that you keep a sharp eye out for guests I am having on my radio show ( I am hosting a number of medical professionals over the coming weeks who could answer all your questions. You can always contact my guests directly to get answers as well. The radio shows I have aired and will soon broadcast report remarkable discoveries that are helping persons with Parkinsons relief from their symptoms,

Also consider attending the 2012 Parkinsons Recovery Summit in Cincinnati June 22 and 23. There will be a critical body of professionals in attendance who can provide you with answers to all of your questions. There will also be a critical core of highly qualified energy healers who will be available to provide treatments for the pain and muscle tightness that is so problematic right now.

Welcome to Parkinsons Recovery!

  1. This is especially seen in people who have chronic Achilles tendonitis (inflammation) that ignore the warning pain and do not seek treatment.
    This includes any style of heavy lifting activities. Minor aches and pains in the foot are treated
    with good supportive shoes (walking or athletic), ice,
    and anti-inflammatory medication like Motrin if not restricted by your doctor.

  2. Why is only energetic healing mentioned?? I am a senior massage specialist,, and I have worked on several Parkinson’s clients to get better flexibility, relaxation, and blood flow. Yes, you need to find someone who has some understanding of the condition, the body, and any medications through some specialized training. And you can combine energy healing with massage so the client gets the best of both, if that is what they wish. Let’s not short change what hands-on work can do for clients on both the physical and mental planes. Touch is very important to those who are ill.
