Parkinson’s disease (PD) is the commonest movement disorder. Patients with PD have typical features, including gait, which can aid in prompt diagnosis. In this video, you can see a person with right hemi-parkinsonism. She has resting tremors, and the upper limb is kept flexed at elbow. There is stooped posture and reduced arm swing on the right side. Face looks expressionless and the blink rate is reduced. Steps are relatively shorter.

I am a doctor with 25 years experience. I have worked as a neurologist for about 20 years. Educating public and healthcare professionals is very dear to me. This is possible due to my interactions with thousands of patients and their caregivers. I salute the patients who suffer and it is our duty to minimise suffering by preventing diseases and ensuring prompt diagnosis and treatment of those already affected. View more posts
