Were you looking for information about Parkinson's Disease? Parquinson is a common misspelling of Parkinson's disease.
Parkinson's disease is a degenerative brain disorder for which there is no cure, and the cause of the disease is unknown at this time. This condition results when there is a deficiency of a certain chemical in the brain called dopamine. This loss of dopamine causes the movement problems characteristic of Parkinson's disease. Although this disorder is difficult to diagnose, medications and brain scans can help healthcare providers determine whether the symptoms are related to Parkinson's disease or to similar conditions. Treatment can include medications, lifestyle changes, or surgery.
