Not really sure if this is the best place to post, but my mother was diagnosed with PD over 2 years ago, she has one side weakness, extreme backpain and struggles to walk.
Whilst she is on medication, she feels like the system has given up on her, long waits between appointments and comments like 'there's nothing else we can do for you'
She had been given a course of physio for her backpain but after this was told there was no point continuing as it wasn't going to help.
A back massage is the most effective way of relieving her pain, has anyone heard of therapeutic treatments like this on the NHS?
She is not a pushy lady and I live too far from home to attend appointments with her at the moment although i am trying to organise moving home to help. it just feels like she is getting no help.
Sorry for the rant!
