Understanding Pain and Parkinson’s Disease for Individuals with and without DBS

Parkinson’s disease (PD) is classically defined as a movement disorder with primary symptoms of tremor, rigidity, bradykinesia, disturbance of gait, and postural control problems.  Pain, however, is increasingly recognized as a disabling symptom and is cited as a major complaint, often prior to confirmation of a PD diagnosis.  Little is known about the pain experienced by People with Parkinson’s Disease (PWP), or how PWP find relief from painful symptoms.
