90-Year-Old Man with Parkinson's Remains Active By Playing Pickleball Everyday

Exercises to help with balance

Other types of exercise could also include traditional Asian methods like Tai Chi and Yoga. Of course, Gamble’s choice pickleball is a good example of a sport that could help his balance, as well as with shifting positions. Other types of exercises may be recommended depending on the physician’s input. Also, remember that a “cool-down period” or the resting time after performing an exercise is longer for those with Parkinson’s as compared to a healthy person, so also provide ample time for a cool-down period before proceeding to your daily routine.
