Exercise has been proven to reduce the symptoms of Parkinson’s disease. It is one of the most important pieces of the puzzle when living with PD because it improves strength, balance and stability. At the time you are told you have the disease, exercise should be prescribed as well as medication. While medication and surgery are potential treatments for the symptoms of Parkinson’s disease, there is a consensus that staying active is an essential tool that can slow the progression of the disease. This disease has no cure, but many patients respond to medications and exercise programs such as the LSVT BIG Program, and Boxing for Parkinson’s.
Our Scottsdale – Raintree location offers both LSVT BIG and Boxing for Parkinson’s, and our Paradise Valley/North Phoenix clinic offers the LSVT BIG program
