Parkinson’s is officially classified as a movement disorder because it involves damage to the areas of the brain, nerves, and muscles that influence the speed, quality, fluency, and ease of movement. Motor (or movement-related) symptoms are usually the most visible elements of Parkinson’s; however, motor symptoms don’t actually appear in most people until around 60−80% of the nerve cells in the brain that make dopamine have stopped working because of Parkinson’s.
During The Victory Summit Event: Motor Symptoms, we will take a deep dive into tremor, rigidity, bradykinesia, postural instability, and OFF with some of the world’s leading Parkinson’s medical experts. In addition, we will feature short movement breaks that fit the event’s theme and show you how to move to manage your motor symptoms.
