Research indicates that older men with Parkinson’s disease have a higher risk for bone fractures. The disease is caused by an imbalance of the neurotransmitters (chemical messengers that carry signal between nerve cells and other cells in the body) dopamine and acetylcholine in the brain, which results in a lack of coordination that manifests itself In tremors, stiff muscles and joints, and/or comprised mobility. Studies show that, not only does Parkinson’s disease comprise the muscles, but it also is associated with lower body density at the hip and spine among male Parkinson’s patients over the age of 65. While there is no cure for Parkinson’s disease , ongoing research suggests that cervical chiropractic treatment can help with tremors and other symptoms.
