A progressive nervous system disorder affecting movement is Parkinson’s disease. There is a gradual increase in its symptoms. Proper treatment can help in controlling the symptoms of Parkinson’s disease. Here we will briefly discuss some treatment options.
• 𝐌𝐞𝐝𝐢𝐜𝐚𝐭𝐢𝐨𝐧𝐬: A neuro medicine doctor in Kolkata prescribes different medications to help you manage problems with movement, walking and tremor. There are low brain dopamine concentrations in people suffering from Parkinson’s disease. The most effective medication for Parkinson’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.
• 𝐒𝐮𝐫𝐠𝐢𝐜𝐚𝐥 𝐏𝐫𝐨𝐜𝐞𝐝𝐮𝐫𝐞𝐬: Into a specific part of your brain, the surgeon implants electrodes. 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 Parkinson’s disease.
The other treatment options include alternative medicine and lifestyle and home remedies.
