Many clinicians, therapists and patients support the use of rehabilitation in the treatment of Parkinson's disease. However, systematic reviews reveal a lack of conclusive evidence to support the use of common forms of rehabilitation therapy in this movement disorder. Lack of evidence of efficacy is not proof of lack of effect. Large pragmatic randomized controlled trials are required to determine the effectiveness and safety of rehabilitation therapies for people with Parkinson's disease.
