Parkinson’s Disease

Parkinson’s is one of the most common nervous system disorders of the elderly. One in every 500 people suffer from Parkinson’s disease in the UK.

Nerve cells in the brain use the chemical dopamine to help control muscle movement throughout the body. In Parkinson’s disease, the nerve cells that make dopamine are destroyed, making it impossible for the brain to send proper signals to muscles in the rest of the body.
