Exercise is important

“Exercise is an important part of healthy living for everyone, however, for people with Parkinson’s disease (PD) exercise is not only healthy, but a vital component to maintaining balance, mobility and daily living activities, along with a potential neuroprotective effect".

- The Parkinson’s Foundation Quality Improvement Initiative studied exercise as part a Parkinson's Outcomes Project study.

Good outcomes for PD

"Every Center of Excellence agrees that they believe exercise is important to good outcomes in PD, and data supports that. Exercising enhances the sense of wellbeing, even across different disease stages and severities. There is a growing consensus among researchers about the short and long-term benefits of exercise for people with PD.”
