Exercise is important for everyone, regardless of age or health status. For people with Parkinson's disease, exercise is more than just healthy — it is a vital component to managing the disease. Regular exercise can help improve balance and mobility, as well as activities of daily living.
There are many different types of exercises that are beneficial for people with PD. Some of the most popular include walking, biking, swimming and stretching. It is important to find an exercise routine that works best for you and stick with it regularly. This will help ensure that you get the most benefit from your workouts.
If you are just starting out on an exercise program, be sure to consult with your doctor and physiotherapist first to make sure it is safe for you to participate. They can also give you advice on the best exercises to start with and how much intensity you should aim for. As your fitness level improves, you can gradually increase the intensity of your workouts - if you'd like some guidance around this, get in touch with one of our friendly admin staff on 07 3706 3407 to see one of our physiotherapists.
Sticking to a regular exercise routine is not always easy, but it is worth it in the long run. Not only will you feel better physically, but you will also have more energy and be less likely to experience depression or anxiety. So get moving and start enjoying the many benefits that come with a healthy exercise program!
