Parkinson’s disease is a progressive degenerative disorder that causes a person to lose control over their limbs and they start shaking vigorously. Parkinson’s disease does not have a cure as of today. However, there are some powerful medications that help to control the symptoms of the disease easily.
Parkinson’s disease starts with slight memory loss and then it also causes the hands and legs to shiver. The muscles become rigid and patients also have gait disorders. They develop a poor posture because of the lack of muscle coordination. The last stage of Parkinson's is the IV stage, and it typically takes 10 to 15 years. Towards the final stages the patient develops dementia and also starts hallucinating. They stop responding to treatment. After that death becomes inevitable.
Even as the disease becomes more degenerative one can notice a considerable shift in the patient's sense of direction and they are unable to make out dimensions. Also, their movements become extremely slow, and they walk with a stupor. The hands shiver so much that it becomes impossible for them to hold anything. They start dropping things frequently. Towards the final stages, several patients have paralytic attacks, and they lose complete motion on one side of the body. Several patients are hospitalized towards the end of the disorder. At this time no physiotherapy is performed on the patient, and they are hospitalized. Some people even experience loss of speech and memory related problems. Losing memory is very common at this stage. However, Parkinson's disease can be managed if diagnosed in its early stages.
