Parkinson’s Disease

Parkinson’s disease is a progressive disorder of the nervous system that currently affects 1% of the American population. It spares race and is found in both men and women although is found to be most common in men. Parkinson’s typically affects older people aged between 50 and 65 though, in some rare cases, can also occur in younger adults.

Cognitive Disorder

As we get older, our bodies begin to change. An entirely natural part of this shift is a slowing down of our brains and a dimished ability to remember and learn new things. However, consistent and increasing occurrences of conditions such as increased memory loss may be a sign of something more serious such as a cognitive disorder.
