Parkinson’s symptoms : 1 A very important sign
Identify Parkinson’s signs of walking
Parkinson’s disease disrupts your movements over time and makes your life difficult.
Unfortunately, many of the symptoms of this disease start gradually and it is difficult to diagnose at the beginning of the disease and early diagnosis of this disease can be vital.
That’s why it’s so important to know what Parkinson’s symptoms are.
The early symptoms of this disease are evident in daily movements. If you notice these symptoms while walking, it could be a sign of Parkinson’s.
According to researchers, this early symptom can be a great help in preventing the disease.
In this part of Updatebody we will find out what symptoms of Parkinson’s can be seen in walking.
Relationship between changing hands while walking with Parkinson’s :
If you move your hands asymmetrically while walking, it may be a sign of Parkinson’s disease.
Studies of Parkinson’s patients’ arm movements have shown that changes in hand movement are associated with early Parkinson’s symptoms.
In this study, a speedometer was attached to the arms of eight Parkinson’s patients and eight healthy individuals of the same age and sex, and then their speed was observed during continuous walking for about eight minutes.
The results showed that people with Parkinson’s moved their arms asymmetrically when walking.
This means that one arm moves significantly less than the other.
In other words, in Parkinson’s patients, left and right hand movements do not fit together.
According to studies, Parkinson’s disease affects the movement of people, but here for the first time we pay attention not only to the number of movements but also the speed of left and right hand movements.
Asymmetry of arm movement can be detected before other Parkinson’s symptoms.
People with Parkinson’s have difficulty with involuntary movements. The most obvious and first sign of Parkinson’s is asymmetry in the movement of the arms.
According to studies, arm asymmetry in Parkinson’s patients can be seen even before the onset of other Parkinson’s symptoms.
Although Parkinson’s patients lose the symmetry of their arm movement while walking early in the disease, no one has used a scientific measurement method to find out when they first showed these symptoms.
If Parkinson’s is diagnosed early, early treatment can reduce the chance of death.
According to recent studies, asymmetry in arm movement is a symptom of Parkinson’s that can be detected early.
Although there is currently no cure for Parkinson’s disease, this symptom reduces the possibility of further symptoms and the possibility of death because it can be diagnosed early and treated immediately.
Symptoms such as changes in movement in the legs mean that you are in the later stages of the disease.
Of course, changes in arm movement are not the only sign of Parkinson’s.
If you notice a change in the way you walk on your feet, you may be in the next stage of Parkinson’s disease.
Research has shown a decrease in coordination between the movements of both legs in Parkinson’s patients, and this type of “abnormal gait” will be more common in later stages of Parkinson’s disease.
Balance and gait problems usually start in the middle of the illness. Gradually it becomes more difficult to stand and walk, and patients may need a walker or even a wheelchair at a more advanced stage.
