Staying active is a vital part of a healthy lifestyle. The benefits of exercise are wide-reaching physically, emotionally, and for cognitive functioning. Getting active can offset the negative effects of a sedentary workday while providing stimulation to the body and mind.
Many patients also find exercise stimulating on a social level when they participate in a group setting, or as a pair. Rather than viewing exercise as a chore, movement can be fun and dynamic. Variety and on-going stimulation can help make exercise an enjoyable aspect of your weekly routine. Your physiotherapist can help you to establish the correct level and type of exercise for your condition.

To increase oxygen flow and maintain a healthy nervous system, heart, and lungs, aerobic exercise is particularly important. Exercise can also alleviate symptoms of depression, which can be common among individuals with Parkinson’s. In addition, learning-based physical exercises can improve memory. Specific exercises have also been shown to be helpful in improving walking.
Your physiotherapist will custom-design an exercise program specific to your needs. The exercise program will be regularly reviewed and progressed to ensure that you are working as efficiently as you can towards your goals. Rather than staying at a plateau in your progress, the program continues to challenge your body at a healthy and continuous rate so that you are always reaching new heights.
