Parkinson disease is a progressive neurological disorder that affects the nervous system. It particularly affects one’s ability to control his or he’s muscles, which leads to random trembling of limbs, slowness, stiffness and loss of balance. On average, around 5 million people are affected by this disease worldwide. This disorder is caused by a combination of genetic and environmental factors. It is generally developed by individuals over the age of 50, but some early on-set cases begin before the age of 20. This disease starts to manifest when there are not enough dopamine cells in the brain, causing the flow of electric signal between the nerves to flow un-smoothly.
In the past 30 years there has been a huge medical breakthrough in finding a treatment for Parkinson disease. Patients may refer to chemical medication, surgery, rehabilitation program and some clinical research trials. However getting better is not easy. The individual suffering from this disease will not, ever, be fully cured and in some very severe cases the treatment available may not be enough . Parkinson disease makes life a lot harder for the individual but also for their families. One suffering from this disease may have troubles keeping certain jobs, such as construction and generally in the triads, get house work done and be 100% useful to their families and communities. A person with PD can never know when to expect a muscle spasm. It can happen at any time and sometimes for no apparent reason, even if treatment is constant and proper. An example of how random these symptoms may occur is when one’s playing a sport, or at work in a meeting even during sleep. As for the family, friends and spouses of those affected by PD, daily life also becomes more challenging as they constantly have to manage medications, make financial decisions and constantly make themselves available to the one suffering.
