Parkinson’s is the fastest growing neurological condition in the world and there is no cure for this debilitating disease.

Even though Parkinson’s is degenerative with no cure It’s not all doom and gloom. People can have a good life and slow the progression of the condition by taking medication, regular exercise and advice from specialist healthcare professionals.
