Parkinson's Disease and Tremors

Overview

The tremor of Parkinson's disease isn't always severe, but it may affect many of your daily activities.

To help control tremor in your hand or arm when you are trying to use the hand, press the affected elbow against your body to make your upper arm stable. Then perform the movement. Wearing a rigid brace across a joint or putting a little weight on your hand may help to reduce tremor and restore control. Caffeine can make tremor worse, so reducing the amount of tea, coffee, or cola you drink may make the tremor less of a problem.
