Improving Balance and Preventing Falls

Parkinson’s disease (PD) affects the parts of the brain controlling balance and coordination. As a result, balance and coordination adjustments that were once automatic now require conscious effort. Additionally, some drugs used to treat PD can lower blood pressure, causing a feeling of faintness when getting up from a sitting or lying position (called Orthostatic Hypotension). Difficulty with balance and/or low blood pressure can increase the risk of falling and bone fractures, both of which can be serious.
