Parkinson’s Disease

Parkinson’s Disease occurs when the nerve cells in the brain that creates dopamine, a chemical that sends signals to the part of the brain that controls movement, start to break down. Dopamine helps the muscles move smoothly when you want them to, without it movement becomes increasingly difficult.

Symptoms

  • Tremor in the hands, arms, legs, or head
  • Stiff muscles
  • Slow movement
  • Problems with balance or walking
