Parkinson’s disease is a degenerative condition of the nervous system. It can, over the course of 10 to 25 years result in total loss of mobility. In all but a few cases of Parkinson’s disease, there is no identifiable cause or even any obvious contributing factor.
The onset of Parkinson’s disease is usually between the ages of 50 and 70. The difference in incidence between men and women is not statistically significant. While the symptoms are certainly troublesome and can eventually result in the total loss of mobility, death as a direct consequence of Parkinson’s disease is uncommon, and the life expectancy for a Parkinson’s patient has over the last decade or so grown very close to that of the population in general.
