Gait and balance issues are a common, difficult-to-treat aspect of Parkinson's disease that can lead to falls. In this Third Thursdays Webinar, Brian Fiske, PhD, vice president of research programs at The Michael J. Fox Foundation (MJFF) chats with MJFF grantee Anne Kloos, PT, PhD, NCS, who's leading research in this area, and MJFF Patient Council member Israel Robledo about:
- The connection between gait, balance and Parkinson's;
- How to treat these issues, such as getting moving again, lessening imbalance and avoiding falls; and
- Therapies in development to alleviate these symptoms.
