Parkinson’s Awareness Month is observed in April.

Parkinson's disease is a condition that affects the brain. It causes problems like shaking and stiffness that get worse over time.

The main symptoms of Parkinson's disease are shaking (tremors), slow movements and stiffness.

Parkinson's disease is caused by a loss of nerve cells in part of the brain. It’s not clear exactly why this happens.

Parkinson’s is a long-term disorder where the central nervous system degenerates and that affects the motor system. Motor symptoms like trembling, stiffness, and rigidity are usually associated with Parkinson’s disease. Symptoms typically occur slowly. One side is often affected first, but as Parkinson’s disease progresses, both sides are affected.

Remember Muhammed Ali? It was Parkinson’s disease that brought this legend down.

Tremors, movement, and balance difficulties, limb rigidity, and delayed muscle action are all symptoms of this slowly advancing illness. While each person’s reaction to the disease differs, consequences are frequently serious. There is no cure for this disease.
