Introduction

A typical case presentation of Parkinson’s may not always be straightforward. Your Parkinson's patient may come to your clinic with simple MSK symptoms asking for help. Your role is to assess your patient thoroughly with a solid base of understanding of Parkinson's to design an effective management programme. In this case study, you will get to learn from Dr Bhanu Ramaswamy on how to think when you are assessing and creating a treatment plan for a patient with Parkinson's.

Aims

Review the treatment experience of a patient who has been diagnosed with Parkinson's. Relate the examination findings to Parkinson's symptoms and explore a methodology of thinking when designing a programme for patients with Parkinson's.
