With a diagnosis of Parkinson’s disease, people can expect tremors and stiffness, slowness or freezing of movement, mental focus, sleep problems, anxiety, balance problems, and consequently, dangerous falls. There are new therapies for Parkinson’s patients to regain their strength, balance, and focus. But those therapies must be practiced often, and before the ravages of this disease have gone too far.
Training with a coach who is certified in Parkinson’s specific therapies, and across many forms of exercise that have proven results known to help Parkinson’s patients is a rare person to find. A certified coach may have the basic idea, but not the years of study and teaching in related disciplines that will enhance and make your exercise regimen efficient, safe and tailored to your abilities.
Often, Parkinson’s patients feel isolated and feel that not much can be done with this diagnosis. But medical studies have shown that with determination and working toward your future health, much can be achieved and regained, aside from the feeling of accomplishment that comes from taking back being in charge of your life.
It is important to note that every nine minutes someone is given this diagnosis: you are not alone. Exercising with others towards the common goal of regaining health fosters the sense of community and does become fun in ways you may never have considered before. Methods are non-contact, and tailored to your level of ability. There is a groundbreaking system sweeping America for Parkinson’s patients that we utilize along with other exercises to amplify an optimum healthful workout.
