Individuals who are diagnosed with Parkinson’s disease may experience some of the following symptoms post diagnosis that may affect the individuals motor coordination (tremors, muscle rigidity, bradykinesia, etc.), cognition, psychiatric, and autonomic response system (Dirette, 2015). Individuals with Parkinson’s can benefit from rehabilitation services to assist with these symptoms that are new, progressing, or worsening.

So Why Rehabilitation Services?

Individuals who are diagnosed with Parkinson’s disease are at increased risk for decreased quality of life due to possible decrease in independence in their meaningful activities. Rehabilitation services such as Occupational Therapy and Physical Therapy can assist an individual by providing supports to into their daily lives and working to maintain physical function.

What is the Difference Between Occupational Therapy and Physical Therapy?

Occupational therapy and physical therapy are both skilled health care professions who utilize research and scientific evidence to ensure they are providing the best overall care to their patients. Occupational therapists look at the individual as a whole, what is meaningful to the individual (habits, roles, routines), and how their environment may be affecting them from participating in their daily lives. Some occupations an occupational therapist may help an individual with can be but not limited to fine motor skills, dressing, meal preparation, medication management, driving, work, recommendations for supports in the individual’s environment home or office, recommendation for adaptive equipment, and education for caregivers (American Occupational Therapy Association, 2022).

 

Likewise, physical therapy provides exercise plans to improve an individuals’ ability to move, reduce or manage pain, restore function, or prevent disability (American Physical Therapy Association, 2022). Physical therapists can also provide individuals with gait training to help individuals walk more efficiently, and possibly reduce the risk of falls (Sears, 2022). Through this physical therapist’s assist individuals with leading active lifestyles to restore or maintain independence (American Physical Therapy Association, 2022).

Please consult with your doctor for what might be the best fit for you. Below is a list of both occupational and physical therapy clinics in the Richmond area who specialize in treating individual with Parkinson’s disease.
