Movement Disorders Care for Veterans

The Parkinson’s Disease Research, Education and Clinical Centers (PADRECCs) treat veterans with other types of movement disorders in addition to PD. Movement disorders are a group of neurological illnesses affecting one’s ability to produce and/or control movement. Other diagnoses commonly treated by the PADRECCs include essential tremor (ET), restless leg syndrome (RLS), dystonia, atypical parkinsonian disorders or “parkinson plus” syndromes (such as Lewy body disease (LBD), progressive supranuclear palsy (PSP), multiple system atrophy (MSA), and corticobasal degeneration (CBD)). To learn more about the PADRECCs and for questions regarding eligibility for VA care or for a list of locations, please visit or call 1-800-949-1000 x5769.

If you a veteran in crisis, or are the family member of a veteran in crisis, the US Department of Veterans Affairs has a 24-hour crisis hotline: 1-800-273-8255 (press “1” to talk to someone). Or send a text to 838255 to connect with a VA responder.
