Infusion therapy helps to treat Parkinson's, reducing the use of other medications that may cause symptom fluctuations.
Also known as device-assisted therapy, it involves medication administered continuously either by needle under the skin or through a gastrostomy tube surgically placed in the stomach.
This form of treatment better supports smooth motor control as it allows for the consistent delivery of medication, reducing the highs and lows of dopamine conversion that can occur with tablet-based medication.
This Living Well session aims to explain and provide information on this form of therapy as a treatment for Parkinson’s.
