About Parkinson's Disease

Parkinson's disease is a progressive neurological disease that affects over 1 million people in the US.  It is most commonly associated with changes in motor function such as tremor, rigidity, slowness of movement, and postural instability, but also affects cognition and peripheral functions.  The prevalence of Parkinson's increases above 60 years of age and thus the patient population is expected to grow in the next several decades.
