Ask the MD: Pain and Parkinson’s

Ask the MD: Pain and Parkinson’s

Pain can be a part of life with Parkinson’s. There are different types, which have different causes and treatment options. Rachel Dolhun, MD, movement disorder specialist and vice president of medical communications at The Michael J. Fox Foundation, discusses how to recognize and manage pain in Parkinson’s.

The “Ask the MD” series is intended as an educational resource for people with Parkinson’s and their loved ones. Please consult with your personal healthcare provider to address individual medical questions.

The Michael J. Fox Foundation for Parkinson’s Research is dedicated to finding a cure for Parkinson’s disease through an aggressively funded research agenda and to ensuring the development of improved therapies for those living with Parkinson’s today.
