Living with Parkinson's

Regular exercise is particularly important in helping relieve muscle stiffness, improving your mood and relieving stress.

There are many activities you can do to help keep yourself fit, ranging from more active sports like tennis and cycling, to less strenuous activities such as walking, gardening and yoga.

You should also try to eat a balanced diet containing all the food groups to give your body the nutrition it needs to stay healthy.

Learn to Walk with Nordic Poles

Pole walking can be particularly helpful for people with Parkinson's, as the poles ensure better posture, and naturally keep the walker more upright. At the same time, taking longer strides can gently stretch limbs and keep the body rotated, which can help loosen up and improve coordination.

Where to Start with Parkinson's Exercise? 

Parkinson's physical therapist, Dr. Sarah King, PT, DPT is talking about which exercises to prioritize when you have Parkinson's (and which ones to drop) so you can move forward with confidence.
