  • Effectiveness
    Can't tell (for Parkinson's disease)
  • Effectiveness
    Moderate (for anxious mood)
  • Side effects
    None
  • Adherence
    Usually
  • Burden
    A little hard to take
Dosage: 15 min Daily
Advice & Tips: I have tried many different "techniques" and ways: Behavior Modification, Acupuncture (which helped a lot to settle me down), Retreats, Prayer, talking with others about spirituality. All of these ways at times helped me; I have slowed down mentally and physically to spend more time doing the things I really want to do--and less in spending time pleasing others. I have to keep at it, though, or I fall by the wayside. Prayer is the most effective for me. Impact: Change, change, change. My life is different--but oh! How I love it.

  • Effectiveness

    Mild (initial increase in pain)
  • Adherence

  • Burden

Dosage:
Advice & Tips: The PT showed me the heel tap & hip rock (I don't know if these are the proper names) are simple enough and I am told that the purpose is to allow built up toxens in the muscles to dissapate, decreasing pain & muscle spasms. They do seem to help some after I've been in the same position (sleeping) for a few hours. I rarely sleep more than 4-5 hours and do turn over a few times, due to pain awakening me.
Cost: < $25 monthly
Side effects: initial increase in pain
