When Parkinson’s disease (PD) strikes, it causes the failure and death of critical nerve cells in the brain, called neurons. Parkinson’s mainly affects neurons in an area of the brain called the substantia nigra. These particular neurons produce dopamine. Dopamine, in turn, communicates with the part of the brain that controls movement and coordination. As PD progresses, dopamine production decreases. This leaves a person unable to control movement in a normal way and this inhibits the ability to exercise and maintain fitness.

important addition to my Parkinson’s protocol.”
“After the first appointment I felt better with easier mobility and experienced improvement in mental clarity. With the second appointment, my energy level improved and most importantly I put my walker away for a few weeks. I have just returned from my third appointment and I'm feeling hopeful that we will see more improvement.Thanks to Dr. Tutera and his staff.”
