Symptomatic treatment for Parkinson's disease is usually successful, especially in the early years, although it does not stop its progress to cure the disease. Experts believe that a comprehensive approach to treatment is most effective. This approach includes early diagnosis, exercise, good nutrition and medication that reduces the symptoms. Many people find that an important part of the care is the health, comfort, and information they get in participating the Parkinson's disease support group. These groups discuss such problems of daily living and are among the first to learn about research results and new treatments.
