Young-Onset Parkinson’s

We typically associate Parkinson’s disease with people that are elderly because the average age of a Parkinson’s diagnosis is around 62 years old. However, when a person is diagnosed before the age of 50, it is called a Young-Onset Parkinson’s disease. Unlike the elders who have Parkinson’s, those with Young-Onset usually have slightly different symptoms progressions. For one, they have a slower rate of the symptoms progression, as well as the lower rates of dementia.  However, they have a increased rate of dystonia and dyskinesias according to the National Parkinson Foundation. Whether if your loved one was diagnosed at an later age or have Young-Onset Parkinson’s, it is still important to understand the difference as you could give the patients the proper care that they vitally need.

Exercising With Arthritis

Many do not associate arthritis with exercise as exercise can cause pain for those with arthritis. Though it might cause some pain, moderate amount of exercise can actually be good for the joints. The condition of the arthritis should also be taken into consideration when patients are participating in exercises. There are different exercises for different stages of arthritis. If the arthritis is in a severe condition, try water therapy. Water therapy lowers the pressure put on the joints and reduces the level of pain. Stretching exercises helps reduce stiffness around the joints. Strength and endurance exercises builds and strengthen the joints.
