Description Introduction: Parkinson’s disease (PD) is one of the most frequent diseases of the central nervous system, and besides the classical motor symptoms it is now known that patients also suffer from a variety of non-motor symptoms that adversely affect functional independence. Aim: The aim of this study was to evaluate the relationship between musculoskeletal symptoms and functionality in people with PD. Materials and methods: This study is an observational study involving patients with PD using the following instruments: Movement Disorder Society-Unified Parkinson Disease Rating Scale (MDS- UPDRS), Fahn-Tolosa-Marín Tremor Rating Scale (TRS), Manual Ability Measure-16 (MAM-16), Evaluative Frailty Index for Physical Activity (EFIP), Coin Rotation Task (CRT), Fatigue Severity Scale (FSS), Brief Pain Inventory (BPI). Results: We included 24 patients, with a mean age of 72,54 ± 9,4 years. A relationship (p <0.05) was found between the outcomes PD severity, tremor, dexterity, fatigue and pain with the functionality variables. Conclusion: Higher musculoskeletal scores were associated with disability. The focus of management in PD should shift to a comprehensive strategy that incorporates care of motor symptoms as temblor or dexterity and non-motor symptoms as fatigue and pain.
Introducción: La enfermedad de Parkinson (EP) es una de las enfermedades más frecuentes del sistema nervioso central, y además de los síntomas motores clásicos, ahora se sabe que los pacientes también sufren una variedad de síntomas no motores que afectan negativamente a la independencia funcional. Objetivo: El objetivo de este estudio fue evaluar la relación entre los síntomas musculoesqueléticos y la funcionalilidad en personas con EP. Materiales y Métodos: Este estudio es un estudio observacional transversal que involucra a pacientes con enfermedad de Parkinson utilizando los siguientes instrumentos: Movement Disorder Society-Unified Parkinson’s Disease Rating Scale (MDS- UPDRS), Fahn-Tolosa-Marín Tremor Rating Scale (TRS), Manual Ability Measure-16 (MAM-16), Evaluative Frailty Index for Physical Activity (EFIP), Coin Rotation Task (CRT), Fatigue Severity Scale (FSS), Brief Pain Inventory (BPI). Resultados: Se incluyeron 24 pacientes, con una edad media de 72,54 ± 9,4 años.  Se encontró relación (p < 0,05) entre las variables severidad del Parkinson, temblor, destreza, fatiga y dolor con las variables de funcionalidad. Conclusiones: Puntuaciones altas en las afecciones musculoesqueléticas se asocian con discapacidad. El enfoque de la gestión en la EP debe cambiar a una estrategia integral que incorpore el cuidado de síntomas motores como el temblor o la destreza y síntomas no motores como la fatiga y el dolor.
