Developing Parkinson’s Disease

Pin

There are five primary motor symptoms of Parkinson’s disease: tremor, rigidity, brady­kinesia (slow movement), postural instability (balance problems), and walking/gait problems. The most obvious symptom of Parkinson’s disease is tremors—notably the hands, but also other parts of the body. For this reason, people may assume it is a musculo­skeletal disorder. Even if physicians prescribe anti-convulsive medications with a mild sedative, there are more symptoms to address down the road.
