Treatments and Professional Support
While there is currently not a cure for Parkinson's, there are a range of treatments that can help to manage the day-to-day symptoms.
The most common treatment for Parkinson's is through medication. Parkinson's medication primarily works by increasing the levels of dopamine in the brain, and optimising the brain's use of dopamine.
