More About Parkinson’s Disease
Parkinson’s disease is a brain disorder that affects motor skills such as balance and coordination. It can cause shaking and stiffness, eventually making walking and using the arms and hands difficult. Parkinson’s is a degenerative disease, which means it worsens over time.

At Providence, our approach is to slow the progression of the disease by conducting research through clinical trials that seek to find a cure.
Your neurological team will use the most advanced methods to diagnose your neuroimmunological condition. These may include one or more of the following:
- Blood test

- Lumbar puncture (spinal tap)
- Medical history
- Physical examination
