“With more than 40 symptoms, Parkinson’s undoubtedly throws up new challenges, but with the right treatment and support… people [can] take control of their lives.
“Paul’s determination to live well with Parkinson’s is mirrored by an incredibly passionate Parkinson’s community, determined both to find new and better treatments but also to not let Parkinson’s hold them back.”
What is Parkinson’s?
Parkinson’s UK explained the progressive neurological condition is caused by nerve cells in the brain dying.
The nerve cells are responsible for creating the chemical dopamine that helps to control movement.
As nerve cells die, less dopamine is produced in the brain, causing issues with movement to appear.
