Exercise with Parkinson’s: an addition to medication, with no bad side effects.

Exercise with Parkinson’s: an addition to medication, with no bad side effects.

There is a growing body of evidence that appropriate exercise can slow the rate of progression of Parkinson’s – and who wouldn’t want to do that? Exercise is like a new medicine but without the negative side effects of a drug. The only side effects are possible stiffness at first in areas not normally stiff, then a feeling of satisfaction and achievement. Not bad!
