The classic motor symptoms of Parkinson Disease

  • Tremor = Resting tremor 4-6 Hz is the MC initial symptom!
  • Rigidity = Muscular rigidity
  • Akinesia = Bradykinesia (slowness) and hypokinesia (decreased movement amplitude) 
  • Postural instability = Usually appears later in the disease course. Loss of postural reflexes leads to a stooped posture and increased risk of falls.
