OverviewBy Mayo Clinic Staff
The trained staff in the Parkinson's Disease and Movement Disorders Center at Mayo Clinic in Arizona cares for people with Parkinson's disease, movement disorders and other nervous system (neurological) conditions.
Parkinson's disease is a progressive neurological disorder that affects movement and may cause shaking (tremor), muscle stiffness (rigidity), slowing of movement, impaired balance or other symptoms.
A team of doctors trained in nervous system conditions (neurologists), physical and occupational therapists, nurse practitioners, and registered nurses evaluate and treat your condition. Your treatment team is dedicated to providing the most appropriate care for your condition. The team also conducts research in Parkinson's disease and other movement disorders.
