Parkinson's Disease

Parkinson’s Disease is a progressive movement disorder, meaning it worsens over time. The cause is unknown and there is currently no known cure. The disease involves the death of neurons, leading to a person being unable to control their movements. Common symptoms include tremor, rigidity, or impaired balance.
