Managing Parkinson’s disease

There is yet to be a drug that stops the degeneration process of the neurons responsible for Parkinson’s disease, but not all therapies come in pill form. You can manage Parkinson’s disease in different ways. 

Disease progression varies from person to person, which can be explained by genetic and other factors. You can mimic the habits of people whose disease progresses the slowest by changing your eating habits, exercise frequency and intensity, sense of social purpose and self-perception

Parkinson Québec has gathered a list of support services to help you in your commitment to manage the progression of your disease.
