A progressive nervous system disorder affecting movement is Parkinsonโ€™s disease. There is a gradual increase in its symptoms. Proper treatment can help in controlling the symptoms of Parkinsonโ€™s disease. Here we will briefly discuss some treatment options.

There are low brain dopamine concentrations in people suffering from Parkinsonโ€™s disease. The most effective medication for Parkinsonโ€™s disease is levodopa, a natural chemical. It gets converted to dopamine after it enters your brain. It is available in a combination with carbidopa (Lodosyn). It helps in preventing the early conversion of levodopa to dopamine outside your brain. The other medications include COMT inhibitors, MAO B inhibitors, dopamine agonists, anticholinergics and amantadine.

He/she also connects the electrodes to a generator, which is implanted in your chest near your collarbone. The name of this procedure is deep brain stimulation (DBS). Electric pulses from this generator move to your brain through the electrodes. This reduces the symptoms of Parkinsonโ€™s disease.

The other treatment options include alternative medicine and lifestyle and home remedies.
