  • About the prevalence of pain in those living with Parkinson’s 
  • The structure of the pain pathway and the different types of pain experienced in Parkinson’s 
  • What causes pain in the early stages of Parkinson’s and how it may change as Parkinson’s progresses  
  • How pain impacts mental health  
  • How to talk to your doctor about pain  
  • About the different treatments for different types of pain, pharmacologic and non-pharmacologic 
  • What you can do every day and throughout your journey with Parkinson’s to manage pain
