The gait of people with Parkinson’s disease can be affected by changes in posture, slowness of movement and a shortened stride.
Changing positions in Parkinson’s disease can be difficult and can be affected by various motor symptoms such as bradykinesia (slowness of movement), muscle stiffness and tremors. Daily movements such as getting out of the bed or getting up from a chair can be challenging.
Parkinson’s disease is the most common neurodegenerative motor disorder, with motor symptoms such as tremors, muscle stiffness, inertia or freezing.
