BMJ confirms the benefits of Physiotherapy for Parkinson's patients

A recent systematic review published on the BMJ (British Medical Journal) website confirms the benefits and effectiveness of physiotherapy for Parkinson's patients, for periods of 3 months or fewer. The review covered 39 randomised controlled trials and although it found that physiotherapy was beneficial, there is still a lack of evidence for the long-term benefits available. It is thought that this may be why so few patients with Parkinson's disease have been referred for Physiotherapy in the past. Surely any hope and support for these patients must be worthwhile.
