ATLANTA, GA, May 29, 2014 /24-7PressRelease/ -- Parkinson's disease is a progressive neurological disorder that affects one in 500 Americans. Parkinson's disease is the result of neural degeneration. Dopamine-producing neurons die out, leaving a patient with compromised muscle control and movement.
ASAP cites a recent study that links the stimulation of the spinal cord with the alleviation of the symptoms of Parkinson's disease in lab rats. By applying electrical stimulation in the dorsal column of the spinal cord for 30 minutes at a time twice a week for six weeks, researchers noted a marked improvement in the rats' motor skills. This treatment was also found to improve the survival of affected neurons. This is a significant step in the treatment and prevention of a debilitating disease.
