Our integrative approach combines cutting-edge medical advancements with evidence-based alternative therapies to deliver the most effective care possible. In this service page, we will discuss the symptoms, diagnosis, and treatment options for Parkinson’s Disease, as well as provide answers to frequently asked questions and information on prevention and outlook.

Symptoms of Parkinson’s Disease

Parkinson’s Disease is a progressive neurological disorder that primarily affects movement. The symptoms of PD vary from person to person, and they tend to worsen over time. Some common symptoms include:

Person massaging their numb hand due to Parkinson's Disease.
  • Tremors, especially in the hands or fingers
  • Bradykinesia (slowness of movement)
  • Muscle stiffness or rigidity
  • Balance and coordination difficulties
  • Postural instability (trouble standing upright)
  • Changes in speech, such as slurred or soft speech
  • Difficulty swallowing
  • Non-motor symptoms, such as constipation, sleep disturbances, and mood changes


There is no specific test for Parkinson’s Disease, so diagnosing PD can be challenging. Our experienced doctors at Axon Integrative Health assess each patient’s medical history, perform a thorough physical examination, and may utilize advanced imaging techniques such as MRI or DaTscan to help confirm the diagnosis and develop an individualized treatment plan.

Our comprehensive treatment plans for Parkinson’s Disease are tailored to address each patient’s unique needs and may include:

  • Neuromodulation – TMS or tDCS

  • Manual Muscle Therapy- graston, cupping, taping, muscle release techniques,

While there is no definitive way to prevent Parkinson’s Disease, adopting a healthy lifestyle may help reduce the risk of developing PD or slow its progression. Some preventive measures include:

A man stretching to help his Parkinson's Disease symptoms.
  • Regular exercise to maintain strength, flexibility, and balance
  • Eating a balanced diet rich in fruits, vegetables, whole grains, and lean protein
  • Staying mentally active through activities such as reading, puzzles, or learning new skills
  • Getting enough rest and managing stress
  • Avoiding smoking and limiting alcohol consumption

Frequently Asked Questions

What causes Parkinson’s Disease?

The exact cause of Parkinson’s Disease is still unknown. However, it is believed to involve a combination of genetic and environmental factors. The loss of dopamine-producing cells in the brain is a primary feature of PD, but the reasons for this cell loss remain unclear. Recent evidence is suggesting that PD originates in the Gut and travels to the brain via the Vagus nerve. This hinders the transmission of signals due to build up of “alpha-syn-nuclein” in the synaptec junctions.  

Is Parkinson’s Disease hereditary?

Although there are some genetic factors that can increase the risk of developing Parkinson’s Disease, the majority of cases are sporadic, meaning they occur without a clear family history. Inherited forms of PD are relatively rare, accounting for only a small percentage of cases.

Can Parkinson’s Disease be cured?

Currently, there is no cure for Parkinson’s Disease. However, the comprehensive treatments available at Axon Integrative Health can help manage symptoms, improve quality of life, and slow down the progression of the disease.

What is the life expectancy for someone with Parkinson’s Disease?

Parkinson’s Disease itself is not considered a fatal condition. With appropriate treatment and care, many people with PD can have a near-normal life expectancy. However, the disease can lead to complications that may impact overall health and well-being.

Outlook for Parkinson’s Disease for Patients

Although Parkinson’s Disease is a progressive disorder, many patients can maintain a good quality of life with the right treatment and support.
