What is Parkinson’s Disease?
Parkinson’s Disease is a slowly progressive disorder, generally associated with trembling of the limbs, stiffness, rigidity of the muscles and slowness of movement. An accelerated loss of the brain chemical dopamine, a neurotransmitter which activates the message system from the brain to control movements, causes this. To date there is no known cause and no cure. Researchers believe that both environmental and genetic factors may play a role in the development of the disease.
