Parkinson's Disease

  • Parkinson's disease is a progressive neurological disorder that involves the deterioration of brain cells. This deterioration slowly destroys a person's motor skills making it progressively difficult to move or communicate.

    Symptoms of Parkinson's disease may include:

    • Muscle stiffness or rigid limbs
    • Tremors
    • Slow or awkward gait
    • Poor posture and balance
    • Loss of facial expression
    • Loss of speech

    • Medication
    • Surgery
    • Rehabilitation (physical and occupational therapy)
