How often should I exercise and what type of exercise is best for persons currently experiencing symptoms of Parkinson’s Disease?
Hear my response to this question which was posed on the Sunday Connections Program sponsored by Parkinsons RecoveryÂ by clicking on the purple arrow below. Â It is now well established that exercise is beneficial for the general population. Exercise has all of the same beneficial effects of people with Parkinson’s disease as it does on healthy individuals. In addition, it can help to alleviate some of the negative signs and symptoms of the disease such as bradykinesia. It can also reduce tremor.
The radio show that I mentioned in my response to this question was with Dr. Daniel Corcos, Ph.D. Â who is Chair of the Graduate Program in Neuroscience at the University of Illinois at Chicago (UIC) and Director of the Neural Control Of Movement Laboratory at UIC. On the radio show Dr. Corcos discusses Â the various forms of exercise that are ideal for persons currently experiencing Parkinson’s symptoms.
