Essential Tremor Treatment

Essential Tremor is the most common movement disorder that is triggered by disrupted Neurological function. It is marked by the involuntary rhythmic shaking of the head, hands, legs, or even voice. These can affect people belonging to any age group, however, they are more common in those above 60 years of age. The condition affects nearly 1 percent of the world's population and 5 percent of the population above 60 years of age. Essential Tremors can make it difficult for you to perform normal day-to-day tasks like holding a glass of water, eating food, and even writing.

What causes essential Tremors?
