[World Parkinson’s Day 2017]
The aim of World Parkinson’s Day is to raise awareness of Parkinson’s disease, to promote a greater understanding about this condition and how it can affect a person’s life.
Parkinson’s disease, a progressive disorder of nervous system that affects movement. At the early stages of this disease, the patient’s face may show little or no expression, or his/her arms may not swing when they are walking. His/her speech may become soft or slurred. Tremor is the most well-known sign of this disease and the symptoms of this disease worsen as the patient’s condition progresses over time.
This disease cannot be cured but medications will improve the symptoms. In occasional cases, the doctor will suggests the patient to do surgery to regulate certain region in the brain and to improve the symptoms.
