About parkinson's disease

Parkinson’s disease (PD), a progressive brain disorder that causes shaking and muscle stiffness, and slows movement [1]. It develops when neurons (brain cells) in a particular part of the brain stop working properly and are lost over time. These neurons produce an important chemical called dopamine. Dopamine is used by the brain to send messages across brain areas to help control movement. Eventually, the brain cannot make enough dopamine to control the movement properly. There is currently no cure for Parkinson’s Disease. Existing treatments aim to help patients manage symptoms [2].

More than 10 million people worldwide are living with Parkinson's disease. The incidence increases with age, but an estimated four percent of people with PD are diagnosed before the age of 50. Men are one and a half times more likely to have Parkinson's than women [3].

The above products may be suitable for treating patients with PD. We recommend that you discuss the suitability of possible treatment options with your doctor. For further information please contact our support team at support@thesocialmedwork.com.
