Tuesday 11 April is World Parkinson’s Day. At Synergy Complex Care, we understand the importance of Parkinson’s disease and the role we all play in supporting those affected by this life-altering condition.
If you or a loved one needs support, we can help you.
What is Parkinson’s disease?
Parkinson’s disease is a progressive neurological disorder that affects over 10 million people worldwide.
It is caused by the degeneration of nerve cells in a region of the brain called the substantia nigra, resulting in a reduction of dopamine production.
Dopamine is essential for coordinating movement and balance, and its depletion leads to the characteristic symptoms of Parkinson’s.
Common symptoms include tremors, stiffness, and slowed movements.
As the disease progresses, patients may also experience non-motor symptoms such as sleep disturbances, cognitive changes, and depression.
