About Parkinson's Disease
Parkinson's disease is a neurological disorder that affects a patient's ability to move. People with Parkinson's disease may experience tremors, slowness of movement, rigid muscles and difficulty with balance that may lead to falls. Most people with Parkinson's disease are diagnosed after the age of 60, but the young can be affected as well. The disease affects both men and women. Currently, there is no cure for Parkinson's disease. For more information go to Learn about Parkinson's Disease.
