Does anyone have any experience of physio from a neurophysio and/or acupuncture?
I have a particular problem with constant pain and stiffness in my neck, which I think might be causing or contributing to recurrent headaches, nausea and dizziness. (Unless that’s just PD and I’m stuck with it)!
I would appreciate any recommendations for therapies and practitioners that you’ve tried. (I’m in the London area).
Have you had dry needling - i get great relief
No I haven’t. Is that different to acupuncture? (Sorry to show my ignorance!) I would be very interested. Thanks so much. Gill
We have a section on our website dedicated to complementary therapies that you should check out. It mentions acupuncture as well as a number of other therapies that may interest you.
Everyone finds comfort and relief from different things but hopefully something with resonate with you!

I have problems with my neck particularly in the evening. However things have been much Improved since I started regular sessions with a physiotherapist who specialises in neurological movement disorders and the associated problems. By coincidence he studied under my Parkinson’s consultant.
I definitely recommend you try and find a specialist which shouldn’t be too difficult in London.
I !I’ve in Suffolk which is probably too far to come for treatment.
Hi GillC, welcome I have access to a wonderful neurophysio at my local hospital. They are part of the Occupational Therapy team, if you have a PD nurse I would ask for their advice on how best to get an appointment with them. I also have regular reflexology sessions. Take care
Yes it is - physios can administer
Oh that is interesting as my neck problems are also worse in the evening.
Sadly Islington doesn’t have a Parkinson’s nurse, but my terrific Parkinson’s UK local advisor told me that my consultant could possibly refer me to a nurse and/or a neurophysio linked to the hospital so I’ve just started down that route.
There seem to be such regional differences and nothing comes without asking for it
Thanks for all the advice and support.
