Parkinson’s disease / carpal tunnel / hospice care: Mayo Clinic Radio
Parkinson's disease is a progressive disorder of the nervous system that affects movement. Parkinson’s develops gradually, sometimes starting with a barely noticeable tremor in just one hand. While a tremor may be the most well-known sign of Parkinson's disease, the disorder commonly also causes stiffness and slowing of movement. April is Parkinson’s Disease Awareness Month, and on the next Mayo Clinic Radio program, neurologist Dr. J. Eric Ahlskog will discuss treatment options for Parkinson's disease. Also on the program, preventive medicine and rehabilitation expert Dr. Jay Smith will share new treatment options for carpal tunnel syndrome. And palliative care specialist Dr. Jacob Strand will explain how early referrals to hospice care can help patients and families benefit from many of the services they are eligible for at the end of life.
Here's the Mayo Clinic Radio podcast.
