What Is Parkinson’s Disease?
Parkinson’s disease is a degenerative brain condition that affects about 10 million Americans. It is caused by the breakdown of dopamine-producing neurons. Although the symptoms of Parkinson’s disease vary among individuals, patients often experience tremors, problems with balance and gait, and rigid limbs. Many sufferers of Parkinson’s disease also experience bradykinesia, or the slowing of movements.
Treatments for Parkinson’s Disease
Drug therapy is the primary way that doctors manage the symptoms of Parkinson’s disease. While these medications can help control the symptoms and slow the progression of the disease, many patients experience the onset of side effects including diarrhea, nausea and vomiting, loss of appetite, lightheadedness and low blood pressure, confusion, fatigue, involuntary movements, changes in behaviors, and difficulty urinating.
As a result, not all individuals can tolerate these conventional treatments. This is where fat stem cell therapy from Innovations Stem Cell Center can help. Fat stem cells may be able to differentiate into new, healthy, dopamine-creating neurons – the same cells that are damaged by the disease. Fat stem cell therapy may also reduce inflammation caused the condition. Many patients experience improvements in their condition and a reduction in Parkinson’s-related symptoms.
