The first hour includes factors unique to Parkinson disease that are associated with musculoskeletal pain. The second hour discusses the physical therapist's role in pre-surgical assessment, immediate post-op, and longer-term follow along. Indications, precautions, and complications of current FDA-approved neurosurgical interventions for people with Parkinson’s disease are included. This course is directly related to the practice of physical therapy and is therefore appropriate for the PT/PTA.
