Parkinson’s rehab in Sydney disorder that develops when nerve cells in the brain die, causing a lack of dopamine. It can cause uncontrollable shaking, stiff muscles and slow movements, a shuffling walk and difficulty with balance and movement.

The condition can only be managed, not cured, with medication and rehabilitation. The tremors are caused by reduced dopamine and can be controlled with medicines, which include tablets or injections, that help increase the amount of dopamine in your brain. There are also some surgical options, including deep brain stimulation surgery for some people, which can reduce tremors and improve movement, as well as reducing a shaky or ‘frozen’ facial expression and drooping of the eyebrows and neck.
