What is BRADYKINESIA?
Bradykinesia means an impaired ability to move the body speedily on command. Bradykinesia usually transpires as the cardinal manifestation of Parkinson’s disease and relates to muscle weakness, rigid muscles, tremors, or medications’ side effects. Bradykinesia not only limits the acceleration and declines the performance of activities but also erases the edgings.
What are the Underlying Causes of BRADYKINESIA?
Bradykinesia often outlines the side effect of a particular medication and, most specifically, Parkinson’s disease. However, the doctors still don’t know what primarily originates the condition.
What are the Symptoms of BRADYKINESIA?
In the upper limbs, bradykinesia can result in difficulty using the hand for fine and quick daily activities. In the lower limbs, unilateral bradykinesia commonly induces dragging of the foot on the ground. People with Parkinson’s disease may also discern an inability to speak clearly. Speech gets hard to understand as the disease progresses. In addition to that, a person may also feel:
- Slow movements and reflexes
- Paralyzed muscles and restricted facial expressions
- A disturbed walk and dragging of a foot while walking
- Difficulty with monotonous tasks and trouble performing daily activities.
