Informative, practical and uplifting, this is a book for anyone with Parkinson's and for those who care for and support them. It contains answers to almost any question you might ask about Parkinson's, from symptoms and diagnosis to the latest treatments and therapies, as well as the most recent medical research into stem cells and gene therapy. Drawing on her own experience of Parkinson's as well as that of others, Ann Andrews offers accessible advice on how to cope with the impact of Parkinson's on everything from employment, finance and relationships, to exercise, diet and self-care. The resulting combination of the practical and the personal sets this book apart from others on the same topic. Thoroughly researched and perceptively written, this is an empowering resource for anyone needing to adjust their life to Parkinson's.
Recent years have brought new insights to the understanding of Parkinson’s disease, impact of exercise and sound displays in rehabilitation and movement facilitation. There is growing evidence that auditory signals in the environment can provide a temporal template for movement and change the mode of motor control from intrinsic to extrinsic; habitual to goal-directed, enabling enhanced motor performance in patients. In addition, forced exercise rate studies show that exercising at the pace of healthy adults can have potential neuroprotective benefits for patients. Many research groups have explored the use of auditory cues (such as rhythmical auditory training) in improving gait and upper limb movement parameters. Cues are usually either intermittent (metronome) or continuous (dynamic sound displays). Similarly, dance based interventions suggest that patients benefit from additional sensory information (i.e. the temporal structure embedded in music and proprioceptive information from a dancing partner) that facilities movement. On the contrary, studies dedicated to auditory perception and motor timing report an impaired ability of patients to perceive and synchronise with complex rhythmical structures (i.e. causing an inability to play musical instruments). With the growth of modern technology and the increasing portability of hi-specification devices (such as smart phones), new research questions on the design of interventions are beginning to emerge as we strive for more efficient therapeutic approaches. In this Research Topic we wanted to bring together top scientists from the movement disorder, motor control and sound related studies along with therapists. That way, we can engage in cross-disciplinary and challenging scientific debate about future rehabilitation avenues and frontiers for Parkinson’s disease patients.
As well as explaining the mechanisms behind Parkinson's and providing detailed information on its symptoms, diagnosis and conventional treatments, this book includes information on groundbreaking alternative treatments such Dr Perlmutter's glutathione therapy using non-prescription supplements.
Parkinson’s disease is on the rise throughout the U.S., and this book offers readers an introduction to its causes, symptoms, and treatments. It is for anyone who suffers from Parkinson’s, or knows and loves someone who does.
Written by an international group of renowned experts, the Fifth Edition of this premier reference provides comprehensive, current information on the genetics, pathophysiology, diagnosis, medical and surgical treatment, and behavioral and psychologic concomitants of all common and uncommon movement disorders. Coverage includes Parkinson's disease, other neurodegenerative diseases, tremors, dystonia, Tourette's syndrome, Huntington's disease, and ataxias. This edition features extensive updates on genetics, imaging, and therapeutics of Parkinson's disease, other parkinsonian disorders, and all hyperkinetic movement disorders. A bound-in CD-ROM, Video Atlas of Movement Disorders, demonstrates the movement and posture abnormalities and other disturbances associated with Parkinson's disease and other neurologic disorders.
Church in Society is a refreshing and inspiring read, compelling both believers and non-believers to value religious rights. Don’s discerning message is a timely voice to both church and society. —Mary-Elsie Wolfe Author, Pastor, Speaker Don Hutchinson provides a sound rationale for the importance of Christian participation in helping shape a shared society focused on the common good. He extols Christian motivation, disapproves apathetic disinterest, and provides a practical guide for Christian engagement with public policy. A good read for those ready to reconsider the continuing value of the relationship between church and state. —Willard Metzger Executive Director, Citizens for Public Justice Like much of twenty-first-century Christianity, we have been influenced by the changing society in which we live. What if we could reverse that influence so that instead of changes in society influencing us, as Christians we influenced the changes in society? The first-century writers of the New Testament reveal a Christianity that adapted within its culture—even today, we Christians look like those around us. The early Christians lived a lifestyle that influenced changes in their society until over time the cultural shape of the Western world was referred to as having a Judeo-Christian heritage. What if instead of nostalgically looking back, like the Israelites on their journey from Egypt longing for a time that perhaps never really was, we deliberately chose to learn the lessons chronicled by Christian citizens of the first century and look forward? This book is about looking forward to a future neighbourhood, city, nation, and world influenced by the way we live our lives, person by person, Christian by Christian, congregation by congregation, denomination by denomination, as the Church in society. Citizenship is about more than politics, and Christian citizenship is about even more.
