Background: Dopamine Replacement Therapy (DRT) represents the most effective treatment for Parkinson’s disease (PD). Nevertheless, several symptoms are unresponsive to treatment and its long-term use leads to serious side effects. To optimize the pharmacological management of PD, dopamine-agonists are often prescribed to “de-novo” patients. Moreover, several studies have shown the effectiveness and the synergic effect of rehabilitation in treating PD.
