Parkinson's Disease Tremor Control

 

Parkinson's disease is a neurodegenerative disorder that manifests clinically with variable degrees of tremor, muscle rigidity, bradykinesia and postural instability. Tremor-predominant Parkinson's disease is characterised by prominent tremor of one or more limbs with a relative lack of significant rigidity and bradykinesia. Despite the lack of other disabling motor symptoms, the tremor of tremor-predominant Parkinson's disease can be very disabling, especially if a postural and kinetic component exists.

Ian Frizell, 55, was diagnosed with the disease in 2011, but has suffered from gradually worsening symptoms since 1995.

Now he has filmed a video to show what a huge difference a small amount of medicinal cannabis makes to his tremors.
