Movement disorders are a group of neurological conditions that can impact a person’s ability to produce and/or control body movement. Movement disorders can cause increased movement, which can be either voluntary or involuntary, or decreased or slow voluntary movements.
An estimated 42 million people in the U.S. live with a movement disorder.
Available treatment options depend on the type of movement disorder. Some can be treated with medications that address the underlying disease. However, for some movement disorders there are no effective therapies or the current standard of care has limitations, which presents an unmet need for patients living with these conditions.
