Region 8 residents show initiative to learn about Parkinson's disease

Posted: Updated:

JONESBORO, AR (KAIT) - A group of Region 8 residents expanded their knowledge on the Parkinson 's disease on Friday.

A seminar took place at the St. Bernard's Imaging Center Friday morning. Neurologist Mario Cauli spoke to people about what Parkinson's disease is and the different treatments available to help manage the disease.

"Parkinson's disease, nowadays, is a disease that is manageable.  People can live a fairly normal life till the disease becomes so disabling. Primarily there are medications and in certain cases, surgery involving the deep brain nuclei", said Dr. Cauli.

He also said people need to talk to their doctor and get informed about treatment that could work for them.
