Know More About Parkinson’s Disease
Parkinson's Disease (PD) usually affects the elderly, and causes 'automatic' movements such as walking and speaking to become stiff, awkward and difficult to coordinate. As a result, people with PD may move slowly, have poor balance and may experience speech and voice difficulties.
Global Hospital, Parel, Mumbai allows PD patients and their caregivers to meet to exchange experiences and ideas, and we are encouraged to see that strong bonds have been formed between them.
