What is Parkinson’s disease?

Parkinson’s disease is a chronic disease that gradually affects the ability to produce movement. Symptoms worsen over time, but actions can be taken to maintain a good quality of life.


The exact causes of Parkinson’s disease remain unclear. Researchers believe it is the result of a combination of genetic and environmental factors, aging and other factors.


Tremors, slow movement and muscle stiffness are the three most common symptoms of Parkinson’s disease but there are a variety of motor and non-motor symptoms.


Parkinson’s disease is a complex disease and its progression is difficult to predict because it can affect people very differently. Although it is a chronic and progressive disease, it is not fatal.

Certain diseases such as essential tremor, normal pressure hydrocephalus and Parkinsonism, among others, share many symptoms with Parkinson’s disease and can be confused with it.
