Mayo Clinic on empowering lives: navigating Parkinson’s disease with hope

June 14, 2024- Parkinson’s disease touches every aspect of a person’s life, from the physical to the emotional, often leaving individuals feeling isolated and overwhelmed. However, amid the challenges, there is a beacon of hope—new treatments and simple lifestyle changes are making a significant difference, empowering those diagnosed to lead fuller, more vibrant lives. Parkinson’s disease is a progressive neurological disorder that profoundly affects movement and other functions. Over 15,000 in Wisconsin and nearly one million people in the U.S. are living with Parkinson’s disease and this number is expected to rise to 1.2 million by 2030. 

While there is no cure for Parkinson’s disease currently, treatments can significantly improve symptoms and give you a better quality of life. Exercise also plays a vital role in managing Parkinson’s disease. According to Mayo Clinic’s Dr. Prashant Natteru, “You can change the course of the disease if you want to, and you can do that by staying physically active and exercising, especially now that there is evidence that exercise can be a potential disease-modifying therapy for Parkinson’s disease.”
