Expert Briefing: Freezing or Sweating Falls When Walking with Parkinson's Disease

Fay B. Horak, Ph.D., P.T., Professor of Neurology at the Oregon Health and Science University, a Parkinson's Foundation Center of Excellence

Parkinson’s disease leads to problems walking and balancing, including freezing of gait, a feeling feet are ‘glued to the floor’ when attempting to start walking or turning, especially when dual-tasking.  Freezing is associated with abnormal balance control, cognitive issues, and reduced connections between the frontal cortex and locomotor areas in the brainstem. New studies suggest that exercises focused on the balance and cognitive issues and ability to walk and talk may improve brain function involved in walking and freezing.

At the end of this presentation, participants will:

  1. Understand how the brain controls walking and balance;
  2. Discover what types of balance and gait impairments in Parkinson’s disease result in freezing and falls; and
  3. Explore what can be done to minimize freezing and falls.
