Parkinson's disease is a nasty condition that affects millions of people throughout the world. It's so common that almost everyone knows someone who is directly affected by it. In severe cases, Parkinson's can completely incapacitate a person's motor skills, leaving them unable to do basic activities. For the last few decades, science has fought hard against the disease with very little success. But recently, a new technology may completely transform the way Parkinson's is treated, and the results are changing lives.
Parkinson's disease slowly kills nerve cells and lowers dopamine levels in the body. The outward sign of this is the shaking and muscle spasms that Parkinson's has come to be associated with. Other symptoms are muscle stiffness and slowness of movement. The new treatment involves surgically implanted deep brain stimulation. Once the treatment is activated, the symptoms of Parkinson's will stop.
In the video below, a man known as Mr. Richardson undergoes the treatment on camera. When he first sits down, you can tell just by watching him for a few seconds how severe his Parkinson's is. But, as soon as the treatment is activated, the symptoms immediately stop. Mr. Richardson's violent shaking instantly becomes nothing but a soft movement, and he is able to touch the tips of his fingers together, something he was never able to do while suffering from the disease. This treatment has the opportunity to change millions of lives, and we can't wait until it's widespread.
