Parkinson disease is a progressive, degenerative neurological movement disorder that affects approximately 6.3 million people worldwide. Although it typically develops after the age of 65, about 15% of people with the condition develop young-onset Parkinson disease before reaching age 50. As Parkinson disease progresses, it becomes increasingly disabling, making daily activities like bathing or dressing difficult or impossible. Many of the symptoms of Parkinson′s disease involve motor control, the ability to control your muscles and movement. Approximately 60,000 Americans are diagnosed with Parkinson disease each year, and this number does not reflect the thousands of cases that go undetected.An estimated seven to 10 million people worldwide are living with Parkinson disease.
