April is National Parkinson’s Month
Parkinson’s disease is a progressive and degenerative brain disorder that impacts muscle movement. The exact cause of the disease is not known. It is thought to be a result from a combination of genetic and environmental factors. The brain produces less dopamine. This chemical transmits messages to the part of the brain that is responsible for movement. Over 17,000 people in Colorado suffer from this disease.
