There are a lot of Parkinson's fitness programs out there, including Rock Steady Boxing, and there are a lot of reasons why I love them. However, If your only source of Parkinson’s exercise is a group fitness class, you may be doing yourself, your brain, and your future a disservice. Here walk through 3 questions to ask about your group fitness class to see where you can improve.
After a diagnosis of Parkinson's Disease, often patients will put off seeing a physical therapist because they're "not that bad". One of my clients, Jennie, was exactly this way.
This is Jennie's story. My intention of sharing her story (with her approval, of course) is to help people with Parkinson's understand that it IS possible to regain strength, stamina, and balance that they feel like is lost forever (and you don't have to be in therapy forever to achieve it!). It's never too early or too late to start re-writing your Parkinson's story.
