Regular exercise is critical for anyone fighting Parkinson's Disease. It is the only proven way to protect the brain against the effects of PD. Exercise has been shown to slow, stop and even reverse
the symptoms of Parkinson's Disease.
Everything else just treats the symptoms.
And Parkinson's makes exercise even more difficult with the depression, apathy and just general fatigue that often accompanies it. And, when you do get up to exercise, what should you do?
Lift? Stretch? Walk? Boxing? Cycling?
How much? How often? How hard?
