This question for my mom with 10 years of PD.
She is looking for physical therapy centers with specialists who have experience with PD patients. Do you have any suggestions as to where we can find relevant information on physical therapy for PD patients? I've called MGH and a couple of PT places but they don't seem to have much information.

Please see my previous post detailing the therapy programs available at Mass. General -- try the phone numbers given, explain that your mother has PD, and ask how she might access therapists and guidance with regard to both therapy and an appropriate walker. Let me know if you have questions regarding nutrition, I will help if I can.
Best regards,
