Currently, there are no treatments available to cure Parkinson’s disease or to completely halt its progression.

If you have an early, mild case of Parkinson’s disease, your doctor may recommend that you start your treatment program with only lifestyle changes, such as diet and exercise. As the disease progresses, however, you’ll probably be advised to begin taking medications to manage your symptoms. Other treatments may be recommended if your symptoms begin to interfere with your daily functioning.

Current goals of treatment include relieving symptoms that interfere with daily functioning and improving quality of life.

Treatment involves the following:

Lifestyle changes
Medications
Surgery
Other treatments
Alternative and complementary therapies
