Parkinson’s disease is a slowly progressive
neurological condition that affects more
than a million people in the United States.
Approximately 60,000 people are newly
diagnosed each year. There is currently no cure
for the disease. Exercise is an important part
of healthy living for everyone, however, for
people with Parkinson’s 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.
In recognition of Parkinson’s Awareness
Month, join us to learn about the different
types of exercise for PD, and how exercise and
movement is helping people live better lives.
