Brief Summary:
In this study, we will determine if posture and heart rate variability will significantly improve in Parkinsons disease with camptocormia after osteopathic manual treatments dystonia.

Condition or disease Intervention/treatment Phase
Parkinson Disease Dystonia Autonomic Dysreflexia Other: osteopathic manual therapy Not Applicable

Detailed Description:
In this study, we will determine if posture and heart rate variability will significantly improve in Parkinsons disease with camptocormia after receiving 8-weekly sessions of the osteopathic manual treatments for truncal flexion dystonia as measured by the distance of the external acoustic meatus from a plumb-line to lateral malleolus, spinal X ray, and heart rate variability.
