Parkinson's disease in Jordan: Barriers and motivators to exercise.

CONCLUSIONS: Findings of the study shed light into large areas of unmet needs of supporting exercise and physiotherapy for people with PD in developing countries as per Jordan. For better patient outcomes, findings of the study suggest that it is crucial to raise awareness among all PD-related stakeholders on the benefits of early referrals to physiotherapy and early engagement in exercise programs.

AbstractIntroductionParkinson ’s disease (PD) is managed primarily by dopamine agonists and physiotherapy while virtual reality (VR) has emerged recently as a complementary method. The present study reviewed the effectiveness of VR in rehabilitation of patients with PD.MethodsLiterature search up to June 2019 identified ten studies (n = 343 participants) suitable for meta-analysis and 27 studies (n = 688 participants) for systematic review. Standard mean difference (SMD) and 95% confidence intervals (CI) were calculated using a random effects model.ResultsIn meta-analysis, compared with active rehabilitation interven...

Conclusions: The post-incline leaning after-effects may induce the short-term effects of forward shifting of COP during quiet standing and expand the forward stability limits in people with PD. PMID: 31769331 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]

Conclusion: This study opens the way for future researchers, psychologists, physiotherapist and other practitioners to do more extensive work in the domain of virtual reality with different sample, constructs and approaches.Implications for rehabilitationIt has become increasing important to introduce new state-to-art technologies in domain of rehabilitation.People are reluctant to use all the traditional modes of treatment. As these conventional ways of treatment are least motivating and interesting to indulge the patients without force and burden. It is evident in the present study that addition of virtual reality-based ...

ConclusionThis new pathway of care has been an effective and efficient way of treating patients with Parkinson ’s disease.It has led us to identify changes in disease progression in a more timely fashion.Outcome measurement is audited yearly to monitor quality of classes and benefit to patients.We will continue to highlight the pathway with new staff and monitor staff satisfaction with its use.
