Welcome to the Parkinsons Disease Channel
Parkinson's disease is a neurological disorder that gets progressively worse over time. It results from the degeneration of neurons in a region of the brain that controls movement. Several symptoms are associated with Parkinson's disease, with a tremor in one of the hands being a common early symptom. Many theories exist about the causes of Parkinson's disease; however, none has ever been proven. If symptoms are severe enough to warrant treatment, medications may be prescribed. In severe cases, surgery may be recommended.

We explain in detail possible causes, early signs and symptoms of the disease, what happens as Parkinson's progresses, and more.
