Parkinson’s disease (PD) is a disorder of the brain which is characterized by decreased production of dopamine, a neurochemical which is responsible to control the movement, (not the strength). This is a chronic and progressive neurological condition which may begin as mild tremors sometimes only on side and then gradually progress to involve the entire system. The exact cause of this debilitating disease is not yet known.
The characteristic features of PD are:
- Tremor of the hands, arms, legs, jaw and face
- Bradykinesia or slowness of movement
- Rigidity or stiffness of the limbs
- Gait abnormality
There are several modes of treatments available to control the symptoms, such as medications, surgery, deep brain stimulation. However there is no cure and patient despite medications deteriorate.
