    Parkinson's disease is a progressive neurological disorder that affects movement control. The condition results from a loss of nerve cells in a specific part of the brain that produce dopamine, a chemical that transmits signals to coordinate movements. Symptoms often include tremors, stiffness, balance problems, sleep issues, and cognitive changes. The disease is typically seen in people over 60 years old, though early-onset forms can occur. While there is currently no cure for Parkinson's, various treatments can help manage symptoms.
