This month’s free webinar from The Michael J Fox Foundation looks at how those living with Parkinson’s can cope with with pain and fatigue
As part of The Michael J Fox Foundation’s Third Thursdays webinar series the charity will be replaying a popular episode which focuses on pain and fatigue.
In the hour-long podcast – hosted by broadcaster and person with Parkinson’s Dave Iverson – an expert panel will discuss what we know about these symptoms, and offer advice on how to treat them.
Fatigue is estimated to affect half of those living with Parkinson’s and is related to the symptoms of the condition. A combination of tremors, stiffness and involuntary movements can cause muscles to work much harder to complete tasks.
