Exercise is an important part of healthy living for everyone, however, for people with Parkinson disease (PD) exercise is not only healthy, but a vital component to maintaining balance, mobility and daily living activities, along with a potential neuroprotective effect.
• Any form of physical exercise you do without injuring yourself will provide benefit. Before beginning any new exercise, consult with your physician and, if available, a physical therapist that understands PD.
• Formal exercise programs balance several different aspects of fitness including strength, balance, coordination, flexibility, and endurance.
• Each of these areas provide a benefit to people with PD. Achieving a balance that works and engages you in a program you can start, maintain and expand upon is the goal.
