Since the first description of Parkinson disease in 1817 as the “shaking palsy”, it has become increasingly known that this common condition is not simply a motor disorder but a complex neurodegenerative process that requires a holistic approach to management. This book aims to provide an easy guide for doctors who are not necessarily specialists in neurology for managing the motor and non-motor symptoms of the disease.
