What is Parkinson's?
Parkinson's is a disease of the central nervous system that affects a person's ability to control body movements. As the disease progresses, it can cause tremor, loss of balance and coordination, slowed movement and rigid muscles. When looking at the big picture, Parkinson's is considered a neurodegenerative disease because it affects the structure and function of neurons in the central nervous system.
Some common symptoms of Parkinson's include:
- Stiffness or slowness of movement
- Loss of balance and coordination
- Tremor in the hands, arms, legs, hips and jaw
- Rigid posture and poor coordination
- Slowed movements
- Difficulty walking from one room to another
- Difficulties with speaking or swallowing
