The Importance of Exercise for those with Parkinson's

Written by: Kim Williams Posted on: March 28, 2017 Blog: Exercise and Parkinson's Disease

Exercise is an essential part of a healthy lifestyle. For those with Parkinson's Disease exercise is a way to maintain functional abilities. Staying active and continuing to exercise can help reduce the symptoms of Parkinson's and improve one's ability to do activities of daily living.

The Indiana Parkinson Foundation developed The CLIMB exercise approach to fight the deficits of Parkinson's . The CLIMB offers various group classes that focus on posture, balance, strength and coordination just to name a few. This program is effective because we focus on not only the group but also the individual. We understand that each individual comes with their own strengths and weaknesses. We provide not only group exercise classes but also individual assessments and programming. This allows each individual and their caregivers the opportunity to work with the trainers to develop an appropriate and effective exercise program to address their specific needs.
