Parkinson’s Disease Treatment
Parkinson’s disease is a motor system disorder that results in the loss of dopamine-producing brain cells. The most common symptoms of Parkinson’s disease include tremors, trembling hands or limbs, stiffness of the body or limbs and impaired balance or coordination. People with Parkinson’s disease may find that symptoms become more pronounced over time and in some cases the disease will progress more quickly than in others.
Although there is no treatment for Parkinson’s disease, there are a number of medications that have been found to help relieve some of the symptoms of the disease. People who suffer from Parkinson’s disease may also benefit from surgery if they do not respond to certain drugs. Parkinson’s disease treatment depends largely on the individual and on the progression of the disease. For some, tremors are the most common complaint of the disease while for others the disease may become debilitating.
