Parkinson’s disease is a neurodegenerative disorder. It results from the progressive loss of dopamine-producing cells in the brain. Dopamine is a chemical that carries signals between nerves in the brain and controls the body’s movements. Decreasing amounts of dopamine to the brain can lead to the four main symptoms of Parkinson’s disease :
• development of tremors
• rigidity and stiffness of limbs (particularly the arms, legs, or neck)
• slowness and reduction of movement
• loss of balance
