The Conductor’s Challenge: Defining Parkinson’s DiseaseParkinson’s disease is a neurodegenerative disorder that causes the death of neurons in the brain. These neurons produce a chemical called dopamine, which helps to control muscle movement. People with Parkinson’s disease have low levels of dopamine, which can lead to symptoms such as difficulty with muscle movement, tremors, and stiffness.One way to define Parkinson’s disease is to think of it as a conductor’s challenge. A conductor must coordinate multiple different instruments to create a single, smooth piece of music. The brain of a person with Parkinson’s disease, like a conductor, controls a network of neurons responsible for moving muscles. When these neurons degenerate, coordination and tremors in muscle movement occur.Symptoms of Parkinson’s DiseaseThe symptoms of Parkinson’s disease typically begin after the age of 50, but they can occur in younger people as well. Symptoms typically progress slowly over time.Here are some of the most common symptoms of Parkinson’s disease:·        Tremors: Shaking of the hands, arms, face, or trunk.·        Muscle rigidity: Muscles become stiff and it becomes difficult to start movements.·        Slowness of movement: Walking, turning, and other movements become slow.Other symptoms of Parkinson’s disease can include:·        Speech changes: Speech may become slow, slurred, or monotone.·        Postural instability: It may be difficult to maintain balance, and there may be a risk of falling.·        Sleep problems: People with Parkinson’s disease may have trouble sleeping, or they may wake up frequently during the night.·        Depression: People with Parkinson’s disease may be more likely to experience depression.·        Cognitive impairment: People with Parkinson’s disease may experience problems with thinking, memory, and judgment.Causes of Parkinson’s DiseaseThe cause of Parkinson’s disease is not fully understood. However, it is thought to be caused by a combination of genetic and environmental factors.Treatment for Parkinson’s DiseaseThere is no cure for Parkinson’s disease, but there are treatments that can help to manage the symptoms. These treatments include:
