Parkinson’s disease is damage to the nervous system where they display muscular rigidity and slow imprecise movement. Usually this affects middle-aged and/or elderly-aged individuals. It can be associated with the degeneration of the brain which causes a deficiency in neurotransmitter dopamine.
In the early stages of Parkinson's disease, your face may show little or no expression, or your arms may not swing when you walk. Your speech may become soft or slurred. Parkinson's disease symptoms worsen as your condition progresses over time.
Although Parkinson's disease can't be cured, medications may markedly improve your symptoms. In occasional cases, your doctor may suggest surgery to regulate certain regions of your brain and improve your symptoms.
Those suffering from Parkinson’s disease will often move slower than the average person, have ridged muscle movements, display tremors that usually occur in the hands, speech changes and their ability to write is affected. Parkinson’s can cause issues with walking, writing, dressing and a variety of other day tasks.
