Parkinson’s Disease

Parkinson’s disease is a progressive, neurological disorder that affects the nerve cells in the brain. Common symptoms of Parkinson’s disease include tremors, shuffling gait, stooped posture, and quiet, slurred speech.

Fortunately, physical therapy and a good exercise program can help slow the progress of Parkinson’s and provide relief for symptoms. It also helps to improve flexibility, strength, and balance by addressing several of the issues that Parkinson’s disease may cause. Exercise is a key piece to improving quality of life for individuals with Parkinson’s Disease.
