Abstract

Objective: Parkinson's disease (PD) is one of the common neurodegenerative disorders in the community. Compressive neuropathy (CN) is one of the conditions that negatively affect workforce and decreases the quality of life. We aimed to investigate the effect of repetitive mechanical movement on tremor dominant (TD) or akinetic-rigid syndrome (ARS) PD and CNs, particularly, the relationship between CN and two types of PD. In addition, we aimed to evaluate the relationship between CNs and the affected side at the onset and during the disease in both types of PD.
