(Washington, D.C.) - Common yet complex, Parkinson’s disease, essential tremor, dystonia and other movement disorders often start gradually and are sometimes misdiagnosed.

Even when diagnosed early and correctly, symptoms can become difficult to manage and make daily activities difficult or impossible.

An estimated 60-thousand Americans are diagnosed with Parkinson’s disease each year. Ten million people are living with PD worldwide; one million are in the United States.
