Parkinson's disease & movement disorders

Parkinson’s disease and similar disorders can be life-changing – but you’re not alone

Parkinson’s disease is a neurological disorder that causes tremors and declining loss of balance, speech and memory. Parkinson’s disease is one of a group of neurological disorders that restrict movement and cause loss of muscle control.

There is no cure for Parkinson’s disease but certain treatments can address the symptoms and help you live a better quality of life. At Novant Health UVA Health System, our talented clinicians are trained to diagnose and care for Parkinson’s disease and other movement disorders, such as Huntington’s disease. After a full evaluation, we may recommend several therapies to help prevent and lessen the symptoms of Parkinson’s disease and other movement disorders.

Our goal is to give you an accurate diagnosis and offer personalized support to help you and your family cope with your condition and maximize your quality of life.
