Parkinson’s Disease

The most common form of Parkinson’s is slowly progressing and degenerative, usually associated with the following symptoms. All of these result from the loss of dopamine-producing brain cells: tremor or trembling of the arms, jaw, legs, and face; stiffness or rigidity of the limbs and trunk; bradykinesia, or slowness of movement; postural instability, or impaired balance and coordination.
