Much research is underway in the field of Parkinson’s disease to determine why people develop this condition, as well as new treatments to help treat its symptoms. It is thought that Parkinson’s is caused by a combination of genetic and environmental factors.

Parkinson’s Disease

Essentially, people with Parkinson’s disease don’t have enough of a chemical that functions as a neurotransmitter that enables certain nerve cells to send essential signals to other nerve cells. Individuals presenting with Parkinson’s Disease experience a loss of control of voluntary movements, which results from a loss of the nerve cells in the brain that make this chemical.

Getting a diagnosis of Parkinson’s disease can be quite a complex process, as symptoms vary from person to person and many illnesses can imitate the symptoms of Parkinson’s disease.
