Patients should look at what's available in their community to start exercising
There are a few options for Parkinson's patients. Finding a group like the Memorial Sports Care’s Rock Steady program is a great way to find like-minded people. Be sure to consult a doctor and neurologist to make sure that undertaking a training program is safe. Start slow and build on intensity over time. Don’t risk injury and disappointment by jumping into an intense exercise, like the 5K, too fast. Build a training program that meets the needs of the patient.
