Pain in Parkinson's Disease

If you live with Parkinson’s disease (PD) and experience pain, you are not alone. Chronic pain is twice as common among people with PD as it is in people without it. In fact, more than 80 percent of people with PD report experiencing pain and many say it’s their most troubling non-motor symptom. Fortunately, there are many ways to manage pain in PD. As with other aspects of the disease, there’s no one-size-fits-all approach. The first step is to work with your healthcare team to understand what’s causing the pain and then work together to find the best treatment plan for you.
