The effects of Parkinson's disease
Skeletal muscles is the type that is involved with the degenerative aspects of Parkinson's.
This is the type of muscle that can be felt and seen, think bicep and what you see if someone flexes that bicep. When we exercise to build muscle, this is the type of muscle that we build. They’re called skeletal muscles because they attach all over the skeleton. Skeletal muscles are paired for use, one muscle will move the bone in one direction, while its pair will move the bone in the opposite direction. Unlike cardiac muscles, which is shares contraction force, skeletal muscles can and will contract voluntarily, specifically the millions of tiny striated muscles in the body that are known as sarcomeres.
