April is Parkinson's Awareness Month
April 3rd, 2018
Parkinson’s disease is a neurodegenerative brain disorder. There is currently no cure, but there are many treatment options to manage symptoms.
Parkinson's disease (PD) is a neurodegenerative disorder that affects predominately dopamine-producing (“dopaminergic”) neurons in a specific area of the brain called substantia nigra.
Symptoms generally develop slowly over years. The progression of symptoms is often a bit different from one person to another due to the diversity of the disease. People with PD may experience:
• Tremor, mainly at rest and described as pill rolling tremor in hands. Other forms of tremor are possible
• Slowness of movements (bradykinesia)
• Limb rigidity
• Gait and balance problems
