What treatments Parkinson’s patients often used?

Parkinson’s disease is deteriorating condition. Complementary therapies are commonly used by people with Parkinson's disease to relieve symptoms not fully addressed by pharmacologic and rehabilitation therapies currently available through medical clinics and programs. Three surveys in the US have shown that 40-85% of patients have used complementary therapies. A recent survey investigated what complementary therapies (CTs) their patients had used, to treat what symptoms, and whether they felt that the treatments were effective. 272 of 435 people with Parkinson's disease who completed the survey (62.5%). Massage was the most frequently used therapy followed by yoga, Tai Chi, meditation and acupuncture. A high proportion of patients found the CT to be effective, for instance meditation was viewed as helpful by 85% of patients. Almost 2/3 of patients said they would be willing to participate in a research study of a CT. CT are viewed to be helpful for both motor and non-motor symptoms.
