Postural instability is common among people with Parkinson's and usually appears in the later stages of the disease. They are unable to maintain an upright posture because of lost reflexes. In advanced stages, individuals may be unable to maintain balance in general, falling over when only slightly jostled. Turning, pivoting, and standing upright also become difficult.
