Join our live Parkinson’s disease case study webinar this week and claim your free infographic and resources

Join us on Saturday 1 June to improve your clinical evaluation of Parkinson’s disease with expert physiotherapist Bhanu Ramaswamy and claim your free resources on Parkinson’s disease to prepare.

Parkinson’s disease is a neurodegenerative disorder mostly presenting in later life. You are probably familiar with the characteristic signs of generalised slowing of movements, resting tremor and rigidity. But did you realise there are many other symptoms associated with the condition such as fatigue, soft voice, loss of smell and constipation? Parkinson’s disease can be challenging to manage, and with many guidelines and even more articles about the assessment and treatment of a person with Parkinson’s, the amount of information can be overwhelming to decipher when you have your patient in front of you.

That’s why we are so excited to share 3 learning opportunities from specialist physiotherapist Bhanu Ramaswamy that will improve your management of people with Parkinson’s disease.

Dr Bhanu Ramaswamy OBE is an Independent Consultant Physiotherapist and Honorary Visiting Fellow at Sheffield Hallam University, UK, with clinical expertise with older people and those with neurological conditions.
