The rehabilitation of Parkinson's disease patients comprises various forms of therapy: physical, speech and psychosocial therapy. Physical rehabilitation is used in conjunction with various anti-parkinsonian agents as a non-pharmacological treatment for Parkinson's disease. This book explores the long-term and short-term benefits of physical therapy and the effectiveness of physical rehabilitation. It is ideal for geriatricians, neurologists, pharmacologists and anyone working with these patients.


' …this textbook gives a sufficient scientific basis to incite the interest of the neurologist of the necessity to prescribe multi-disciplinary rehabilitation for [Parkinson's Disease] in association drug treatment'. - Karin Diserens, Lausanne
