Balance Dysfunction in Parkinson s Disease

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

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

Introduction: Postural instability is a known contributing factor to balance dysfunction and increased fall risk in those with Parkinson’s disease (PD). The NeuroCom Force Platform System (FP) can provide objective, quantitative information regarding balance impairments in voluntary and reactive postural strategies and sensory strategies. The purpose of this study was to examine balance performance as measured by the Limits of Stability (LOS), Sensory Organization Test (SOT), and Motor Control test (MCT) utilizing the FP system in persons with PD

Introduction: Parkinson’s Disease (PD) is a highly prevalent neurodegenerative disorder with incidence increasing annually in the growing elderly population in the United States. Complex movement and balance impairments in PD contribute to high fall risk and devastating consequences of all-related injuries in this population. Therefore, comprehensive balance assessment is warranted to identify intrinsic fall risk factors and direct intervention for fall prevention. The purpose of this study was to examine the test psychometric properties of three balance measures on
