Parkinson's Disease & Balance Disorders

parkinson's diseaseParkinson’s Disease is a progressive, neurologically degenerative disease that affects 10 million people worldwide, with 200,000 new diagnoses made annually.

Parkinson’s Disease is essentially a breakdown of neurons in the brain that results in low dopamine levels causing a wide variety of symptoms. One of the more common signs is a resting tremor in the arms and hands, even with the absence of voluntary movement. These tremors can also affect the facial area like the jaw or lips. Patients with Parkinson’s also have a rigid posture or hypertonicity. The paraspinal muscles in the back get very tight.  There’s an overall increase in tone, and movement in general is quite slow or limited for a patient dealing with Parkinson’s.  The Parkinson’s patient rarely smiles and blinking of the eyes are common occurrences.  While walking, its typical to see a loss of swinging of the arms and a shuffling of the gait with an overall flexed posture of the body and extremities. 

Most patients suffering from Parkinson’s Disease have damage to a part of the brain called the basal ganglia. The basal ganglia is associated with a variety of bodily functions including control of voluntary motor movements, executive functions, learning, and emotions. The basal ganglia also houses dopamine neuro-transmitters.  When there is damage to the basal ganglia, dopamine levels drop in the brain, and Parkinson type symptoms can become apparent.

balance disordersThe current theories surrounding Parkinsonionism believe that since your brain is deficient in dopamine, medications to incresase dopamine levels are the only form of treatment.  Your doctor may prescribe drugs such as Levodopa and Carbadopa.  While the drugs may initially help you to manage your symptoms, they are proven to lose their efficacy over time, and can actually speed deterioration of the brain. The real question is why is there a decrease in dopamine levels in your brain?  Why are these neurons breaking down?  Why isn’t your basal ganglia functioning properly?  What is the root functional cause of your neurologically degenerative condition?

Most likely, you doctor has told you to try the drugs without understanding and exploring why you have low dopamine levels and basal ganglia damage in the first place.  You may not be aware, but the brain and nerves need two main things to survive: fuel and activation.  Fuel is provided in the form of oxygen and glucose.  If there is not enough oxygen in the body, the brain cannot properly function.  In addition, if glucose levels are not in control, glucose can actually be extremely toxic to the body becoming the number one stressor on the metabolic system.  Our clinic completes a full metabolic blood panel which allows our clinicians to closely monitor and adjust glucose and oxygen levels within the body.  Activation is how well the brain is firing.  Our clinic provides a variety of brain based therapies that are designed to exercise the brain and help strengthen and regrow the nerves within damaged areas of the brain.

Our facility offers you new hope in understating what may be the root functional cause of your Parkinson’s Disease.   Dr. Anderson takes a multi-pronged approach when determine the root functional cause of your disease.  For example, some of the areas our clinic explores with patients are:

  • Complete neurological work up on your very first visit to determine how your brain and body is functioning.
  • Measure the sensory nerves, your motor nerves, assessing the patient’s balance and mobility.
  • Determine the oxygen levels
  • Compete bloodwork panels

The treatment that is provided at Premier Health of Summit has three main goals:

  1. Prevent further neuronal breakdown
  2. Stimulate mechano-receptors to strengthen the brain
  3. Reduce or eliminate neurological inflammation

The amount of treatment needed varies from person to person and can only be determined after a detailed neurological and brain based evaluation. As long as you have not sustained at least 85% nervous system damage there is hope! Dr. Brian Anderson has been successful with helping thousands of clients with chronic neurologically based conditions.
