Parkinson's disease is a progressive brain illness that affects the way you move. There are cells in the brain that produce a chemical called dopamine, which sends signals to the parts of your brain that control movement. Doctors aren’t sure why, but sometimes those dopamine-producing neurons become damaged, causing motor and non-motor symptoms.

The cause of Parkinson’s is unknown, but research shows that genetics and environmental triggers may be factors. Parkinson’s tends to affect more men than women, and the disease generally appears in middle or later life. Promising research and treatment advancements are happening all the time, and many of the current treatment options can help you continue to live your best life.
