Micrographia is an early warning sign of Parkinson’s disease. It is characterized by cramped or abnormally small handwriting. All the people with PD don’t experience the same symptoms and not everyone with PD is going to have micrographia. However, according to a study, nearly 50% of all the people with PD have it as a symptom.
Basal ganglia is the part of our brain that is responsible for our handwriting. Progression of Parkinson’s disease causes problems with some of the daily tasks, including writing. And this happens due to the weakening of basal ganglia.
Parkinson’s disease is a chronic disorder and micrographia a symptom of this condition is found to worsen with time. Micrographia in Parkinson’s disease is believed to be caused by bradykinesia, which is the loss and slowing down of instinctive/spontaneous movement – a motor symptom of PD. Having said that, as already mentioned, micrographia can appear at an early stage of the disease – a phase where there is not much bradykinesia.
Micrographia treatment or the treatment of any other symptom of PD is all about managing these symptoms. However, the new developments in stem cell therapy are found to be quite effective. The best thing to do is consult your physician or a stem cell therapy expert to find out whether it will work for you or not.
