Your Health: Parkinsons Disease


Parkinson's disease is a neurological disorder affecting about one million people in the United States and Canada. Many people may associate this movement disorder with physical symptoms such tremor and slowness of movement; however, neurologists are also looking at some under-diagnosed "non-motor" symptoms, which include depression, constipation and sleep disturbances.

In this interview, Dr. Lisa Shulman, professor of surgery at the University of Maryland School of Medicine, will discuss the latest in diagnosing and treating Parkinson's, including how doctors are encouraging their patients to be more involved in their own care.
