What is it?
This web page is a group of resources gathered by the Academy of Neurologic Physical Therapy on exercise for Parkinson’s Disease. Most of the resources are exercise videos, but there is also a booklet from the American Parkinson Disease Association with exercise guidelines, an exercise program, and an exercise log that can be used for patient education and exercise prescription (“Be Active & Beyond” booklet).
There are so many good resources listed on this web page that we couldn’t just choose one to share with you! If you’re looking for printed material, be sure to download the Be Active & Beyond booklet. If you’re looking for exercise videos for patients to follow along with, there are plenty to check out, with themes including dance, tai chi, yoga, seated exercises, and more.
