Parkinson’s is a disease in which parts of the brain become progressively damaged. The symptoms can be both physical and psychological, including involuntary shaking or tremors, slow movement and stiff and inflexible muscles.
Parkinson’s UK estimates that 1 in 37 people in the UK will be diagnosed in their lifetime, with approximately 145,000 people living with the condition in 2020. Men aged between 50 and 89 are 1.4 times more likely to be diagnosed than women.
