Welcome to Our Parkinson's Place

I copy news articles pertaining to research, news and information for Parkinson's disease, Dementia, the Brain, Depression and Parkinson's with Dystonia. I also post about Fundraising for Parkinson's disease and events. I try to be up-to-date as possible. I have Parkinson's
diseases as well and thought it would be nice to have a place where
updated news is in one place. That is why I began this blog.
I am not responsible for it's contents, I am just a copier of information searched on the computer. Please understand the copies are just that, copies and at times, I am unable to enlarge the wording or keep it uniformed as I wish. This is for you to read and to always keep an open mind.
Please discuss this with your doctor, should you have any questions, or concerns. Never do anything without talking to your doctor. I do not make any money from this website. I volunteer my time to help all of us to be informed. Please No advertisers, and No Information about Herbal treatments. Please no advertisements.
This is a free site for all.
Thank you.

Special therapy for Parkinson's patients

February 27, 2017

Tyrone, Blair County, Pa. - Patients with severe neurological diseases will soon  regain access to special therapy equipment.
The Giger Machine is designed to create pathways around brain areas, damaged by Parkinson's disease, multiple sclerosis, stroke and other neurological conditions.
It  was mothballed in December when Tyrone Hospital and Procare ended their partnership at "We Care Therapy Services" for children with special needs.  
Patients who said their conditions improved after therapy with the Giger Machine, appealed for it to be put back in service.
On Monday, the hospital and the We Care Foundation announced that the equipment will moved to a Procare facility in Pinecroft, Blair County, where patients can again use it. 

The Giger machine in our region is one of a handful at facilities across the country.
