Diagnosed with Parkison's disease. Detected PLID problem in MRI. Are both connected? Solution?

Hi doctor, My wife is diagnosed as Akinitic Regidity Syndrom and the doctor said, Parkinsonism . Doctor prescribed Syndropa Plus 125mg, Pecetine 1mg, Resalect-0.5mg and Ropak-2mg. Her problem is Tremor in the hands and legs, Slow movement, Feeble sound in talking, and more important is back-pain, could not walk for few minutes, cannot stand-up from the chair. Earlier, on MRI , it was detected that there is a PLID problem at L4/s1 - L5/s1. Is there any connection between the parkinsonism and PLID. How can I get rid of this problem?

Most of the the symptoms or problems raised in the question are related to the Parkinsonism. Many people will have some disc changes with aging process. Its important to know whether the symptoms are related to it or due to some other medical cause. Even though there is no direct evidence between disc problems and parkinsonism, but other spine issue could be developed due to camptocormia (bending of spine)
