Balance Dysfunction in Parkinson’s Disease: Basic Mechanisms to Clinical Management presents the most updated information on a variety of topics. Sections help clinicians evaluate the types of balance control issues, dynamic balance dysfunction during turning, and the effects of medication, deep brain stimulation, and rehabilitation intervention on balance control. This book is the first to review the four main postural control systems and how they are affected, including balance during quiet stance, reactive postural adjustments to external perturbations, anticipatory postural adjustments in preparation for voluntary movements, and dynamic balance control during walking and turning. In addition, the book's authors summarize the effects of levodopa, deep brain stimulation, and rehabilitation intervention for each balance domain. This book is recommended for anyone interested in how and why balance control is affected by PD. Provides the first comprehensive review of research to date on balance dysfunctions in Parkinson's disease Discusses how to translate current neuroscience research into practice regarding neural control of balance Provides evidence on the effects of current interventions on balance control

[Truncated abstract] One of the classical and more debilitating symptoms of Parkinson's disease is postural instability. As a result of this impairment in balance, patients with Parkinson's disease experience restricted mobility, are prone to falls, display a reduced capacity to perform activities of daily living and have a reduced quality of life. This thesis reviews our current knowledge of Parkinson's disease in the context of the mechanisms regulating postural control and how impairments to these lead to postural instability. The

This chapter addresses the important and undertreated problem of balance disorders. The chapter has a simplified summary of the physiology of balance problems in order to set the scene. The issue of assessment is next addressed with discussion of important tests including the Berg Balance Scale and the Get Up and Go Test, and others. Posturography is discussed as well as assessment of the gravitional vertical. The assessment of vestibular function is of key importance and discussed in some detail.

Parkinson’s disease (PD) is characterized as a chronic, progressive movement disorder. Motor symptoms may include posture and balance dysfunction. Non-motor symptoms may include changes in cognition, sleep patterns, and mood. Any combination of these symptoms can impact quality of life (QoL). Horseback riding may be an effective modality to slow the progression of symptoms in those with PD. The use of a simulator can be a cost-effective option to horseback riding in a therapeutic setting. The purpose of this

Postural instability is a primary symptom of advanced Parkinson2s disease (PD). Falling, loss of mobility, and restriction of activity due to postural instability have a major influence on the health and quality of life of PD patients. Presently, clinical measurement of postural stability in PD is crude. Patient recovery to a sudden, backward pull of the shoulders by the physician (the retropulsion test) typically serves as an index of postural instability. The retropulsion test is subjective and there are

Progressive (or degenerative) approach that it typically worsens through the years and neurological approach that it influences the frightened gadget (this system consists of the mind, spinal wire, and nerves for the duration of the body). The primary signs of Parkinson's are slowness of motion (bradykinesia), pressure, tremor and postural instability (balance problems). While Parkinson's is usually defined as a 'motion disorder', someone with Parkinson's may

With a growing population of individuals with Parkinson's disease (PD) and the high impact of falls in this population, effective and efficient treatment is required to minimize falls and enhance life quality. Currently, little research has been done on the impact of vestibular dysfunction on balance and falls for individuals with PD. The purpose of this study was to determine for individuals with PD the feasibility of conducting a clinical vestibular test battery and to determine the relationship of vestibular

Parkinson's disease (PD) is a neurodegenerative disorder, characterized by four cardinal motor symptoms including bradykinesia, tremor, rigidity, and postural instability, and non-motor symptoms including cognitive impairment. Daily activities, such as walking and maintaining balance, are impacted due to impairments in motor function, and are further exacerbated with the addition of cognitive loading, or dual-tasking (DT). High-intensity exercise has demonstrated centrally-mediated improvements of PD symptoms, with additional positive effects on overall health. The goal of this project was to identify changes
