Understanding Parkinson’s

Parkinson’s disease is a progressive neurological disorder, which so far cannot be cured. Some people get worse more slowly than others, and it can be effectively controlled with medication for many years.

People with Parkinson’s may tremble involuntarily, find their muscles become rigid and stiff and lose spontaneous movement. They walk with a recognisable gait in which the body is bent or flexed and may have difficulty maintaining their balance. They may also have difficulties with swallowing, speaking and breathing. Sometimes cognition and language are affected.
