How dance activity affects the mental health in individuals with Parkinson’s disease (English)
Abstract [sv]

I Sverige beräknas ca 18000-20000 individerha Parkinsons sjukdom (PS) och de flesta som drabbas är över 65 år. PS associeras med motoriska och icke-motoriska symtom som alla påverkar livskvaliteten hos de drabbade. För att minska psykisk ohälsa och öka livskvaliteten behöver man identifiera alternativa, ej farmakologiska behandlingar vid PS samt förebygga depression. Syftet var att undersöka hur dans påverkar den psykiska hälsan hos individer med PS. Kvalitativ metod med semistrukturerade intervjuer användes. Tio informanter med variation i hur länge de har haft sjukdomen, ålder och kön intervjuades. Resultatet visar att dansen gav individerna glädje, gjorde att de kände sig som en del av något större och gav dem ökad självkänsla. Studien visar på dansens betydelse för den psykiska hälsan hos individer med PS. Det är viktigt att undersöka alternativa behandlingsmetoder vid PS för att minska den psykiska ohälsan, läkemedelsanvändningen samt öka livskvaliteten.
