Essential tremor causes uncontrollable shaking, taking a significant toll on daily life.
NEEDS IN A MILLION
Essential tremor (ET) is a neurological disorder characterized by uncontrollable and rhythmic shaking or trembling in one or more parts of the body while in use, unlike Parkinson’s disease (PD) where shaking generally occurs during rest.1-3
Tremor in the hands can impair the ability to eat, shave, write, and perform household activities and functions in the workplace. Many people with ET are too embarrassed to go out in public and remain isolated in their homes, which can lead to depression.3
MORE COMMON THAN PD
ET is 8X more common than PD and effects approximately 10 million people in the United States4.
