Parkinson's Disease is a progressive neurological condition. Parkinson's Disease leads to movement disorders making everyday activities more difficult such as walking.
Parkinson's Disease is caused by loss of nerve cells in a part of the brain called the substantia nigra. It is these cells that normally produce a chemical called dopamine. Dopamine allows the messages to reach the parts of the brain that help co-odinate movements.
Symptoms of Parkinson's Disease can include:
Slowness of movement
Stiffness in your joints
Difficulties with walking
