    • Overview

      Parkinson’s disease (PD) is a chronic, progressive, degenerative neurologic disease that affects body movement, muscle control and balance. It is considered the most common movement disorder. It is a topic that we revisit every few years because it is the third most common neurologic disease (10 in 1000), and new therapies are often coming into existence.
