There are a number of studies which suggest that exercise should be an important part of everyone’s lifestyle, especially those of us with Parkinson’s Disease (PD). It is not only healthy but an essential component to maintaining balance, mobility and daily living activities, as well as a potential neuroprotective benefit. There is a growing consensus among researchers about the short and long-term benefits of exercise for people with PD.
Much like Parkinson’s affects us all in different ways there is no standard set of exercises that will work for everyone. Experiment and find what works best for you.
