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.

About Parkinson's Disease

Parkinson's Disease is a neurological disease commonly associated with shaking, slowness of movement, rigidity, and changes in speech and facial expression.  Non-motor impairments such as depression, memory loss, and language have been revealed more recently.  There is no definitive diagnostic test to determine or cure.  In most cases, Parkinson's Disease is a slowly developing disease over a course of many years. Scientific research is actively pursuing several possible causes of Parkinson's Disease including environmental toxins, and hereditary.  Currently new drug, exercise and surgical therapies are avaialbe to control symptoms in varying degrees.  Patients, caregivers and their families need support throughout its progression. 

In the United States, 60,000 new cases are diagnosed each year, joining the 1.5 million Americans who currently have Parkinson disease. The frequency of the disease is considerably higher in the over-60 age group, even though there is an alarming increase of patients of younger age. In consideration of the increased life expectancy in this country and worldwide, an increasing number of people will be victims of Parkinson's disease.

The American Parkinson Disease Association, Inc., founded in 1961, has sought to "Ease the Burden and Find the Cure" for this disease through research, patient and family support and education. For additional information regardng Parkinsons disease go to Learn About Parkinson's Disease.
