What is Parkinson’s?

Parkinson’s disease is a common disorder of the brain. It develops because of damage to that part of the brain that controls movement, posture, and balance. This damage results in the primary symptoms: tremor at rest, slowness of movements, stiffness or rigidity, difficulty with balance and walking.
