Parkinson’s disease is a progressive disorder that is caused by degeneration of nerve cells in the part of the brain called the substantia nigra, which controls movement. These nerve cells die or become impaired, losing the ability to produce an important chemical called dopamine. The result is tremor (trembling in the hands, arms, legs and jaw); rigidity (stiffness of the limbs); slowness of movement; and impaired balance and coordination – the hallmark symptoms of Parkinson's.

It is important to diagnose the disease at its early stages itself. This enables in identification of the causes, intervention of treatment procedures to prevent fast degeneration.
The disease usually affects one side of the body and spreads over progressively. It is found mostly in people aged over 60 and is not a life-threatening disease. In cases of genetic abnormalities, there are possibilities that it can begin to impact at an early age.
