NPF Discussion : Leg Freezing

Posted: Sat Jul 25, 2009 4:44 am Post subject: Leg Freezing

My brother has freezing on his leg when his medication is wearing off.

There are way to prevent him from falling down until the freezing going off.

1. stop from going foward going backward

2. stay horizon the place where you are to release the freezing

3.Holding both leg and slap side of both knee to release the freezin.

Is it strange why the parkinson patient does not have freezing problem whilst on cycling?

Well, the brain is an interesting organ! It is fascinating. Sometimes, we need to "trick it" to get the results we want. PD patients to well when they are cued, or there is a pattern that they need to follow, or there is a line that they need to cross, or there is a rhythm or beat that they need to in tandem with. These are some audio or visual tricks used for freezing. Spinning and cycling works the same way. IF the freezing occurs during wearing off however, they might benefit from increasing PD meds.
