Research demonstrates that exercise is beneficial for people with Parkinson’s both for their short-term health, long-term longevity and may be able to slow the progression of Parkinson’s. Physical therapy can help individuals get started with exercise, and also to address specific functional limitations that interfere with their ability to exercise; wellness programs such as exercise classes can help support people to continue exercising in the way that the research demonstrates is necessary for optimal outcomes. This course is directly related to the practice of physical therapy and is therefore appropriate for the PT/PTA.
