Early Detection of Parkinson’s Disease Even More Important
Parkinson’s Disease and Feet
A study recently released by the European Academy of Neurology points to many advances being made in the treatment of Parkinson’s disease. Many symptoms, from impaired sense of smell to muscle weakness, can be very early signs of the disease. When doctors know that several seemingly unrelated symptoms are tied to Parkinson’s, they can provide earlier diagnosis and treatment. Early treatment can result in more successfully managing the disease and improving the patient’s quality and length of life.
An appliance to keep bed covers off feet such as The FootSleepGuard has been utilized by clients to help manage Parkinson’s disease. The device keeps the covers off the patient’s feet thus allowing more and better sleep. Some examples of such a device are blanket lifter, bed hoop for foot pain or foot pressure, and frame to protect feet in bed.
Please take the time and effort to take care of your feet and your overall health will benefit.
