Parkinson’s Disease

Parkinson’s Disease is a brain disorder characterized by progressive decline in the ability to control movement, speech and related motor functions controlled by the nervous system. It often includes changes in mood, behavior, thinking and sensation ability. Early symptoms are sometimes confused with the early effects of aging. Symptoms vary widely but usually show up in one or more of the following:

  • Tremor, or trembling in hands, arms, legs, jaw, and face
  • Rigidity, or stiffness of limbs and trunk,
  • Slowness of movement,
  • Postural instability or declines in balance and coordination,
  • Memory disorders in some patients
