Parkinson's Rock Steady Group Comes Out On Top in Big Dawg Dare Obstacle

Exercising is very important for reducing Parkinson's symptoms

Exercise is important for anyone’s health, but it's vital for Parkinson's patients to maintain their balance, mobility, and daily routine for as long as possible.

There is no right or wrong exercise for patients. However, studies have shown that programs that include flexibility training, aerobic activity, and strengthening exercises offer the most benefits for Parkinson's symptoms. The most important thing for Parkinson's patients to do is to try something that makes them happy. This could be training for a mud run, swimming laps, or even taking up Tai Chi. As an added bonus, patients can also reduce the risk for depression and anxiety and can also improve their sleeping patterns.
