Parkinson disease is very common in the world, ranking second to Alzheimers disease in terms of degenerative neurological disorders. The disease since 1817 has had so many researchers looking into it, bringing out symptoms, possible treatment options, causes of the disorder to mention but a few. There are a number of studies that have looked into the symptoms of the disorder, especially the non-motor symptoms of the disorder. This study looks into the motor symptoms associated with the disease. It brought out the causes, which the study from the literature review conducted asserted that there is no known cause for it, however, about 60 to 80 percent of persons with PD, have a degenerating number of dopamine, as such, this can be postulated to be the cause. The study also affirmed that there is no known treatment for the symptoms, doctors and medical practitioners would therefore have to try different forms of treatment till the right one for the patient is arrived at.
