Parkinson’s is a progressive neurological disorder, which is most prevalent in the over 50s. It is caused when nerve cells in the brain become damaged and no longer produce dopamine – a chemical necessary to control muscle movement. Symptoms most commonly associated with Parkinson’s are those that affect mobility, including tremors, rigidity and slowness of movement, but the disease can also affect a person’s automatic responses, such as swallowing and blinking. Other symptoms include pain, sleep disturbance, coordination and balance issues, as well as a range of mental health issues, including depression, anxiety and dementia.
