Q for more info: The cause varies. Is the tremor the same on both sides? Does it occur while sitting quietly, or when holding a glass of water or a laser pointer? Does it occur every day? Does it affect hand writing? These are some of the important questions to answer to determine the cause.

How can rehabilitation medicine help manage tremors?

Muscle ups...: Typically, tremors are usually treated by a neurologist; or managed with medications...And sometimes even the medications themselves are the cause of the tremors. Rehab medicine plays a role in strengthening the muscles and thus toning up the neurology at the local level. Hope this addresses your post. Cheers!

Yes: Deep brain stimulation can help patients with all three cardinal motor symptoms of Parkinson's disease, including tremor, rigidity (or stiffness), and slowness (bradykinesia). It does not help with non-motor symptoms, balance problems, or freezing.
