The Michael J Fox Foundation reports that forced exercise studies on Parkinson’s disease (PD) have shown improved mobility and quality of life, and possibly slower rate of disease progression. People with Parkinson’s disease (PD) benefit from many types of exercise — boxing, cycling, yoga and others. Regular physical activity can ease motor and non-motor symptoms, boost mood and improve quality of life. It’s good for general health and well-being and, in some cases, just as important as the medications your doctor prescribes to manage PD.
Rock Steady Boxing Association and other research on exercise studies confirm similar benefits experienced by Parkinson’s patients. Check out the detailed reports on these findings on the articles published on this blog and the referenced links.
Quotes from the “In Your Corner Publication, published by the Rock Steady Boxing, Inc”: “The overall message regarding PD is that exercise you do consistently will help improve your Parkinson’s symptoms and your overall health. Some even say it might delay the progression of the disease. When you are diagnosed with this disease where exercise becomes one of your first lines of defense and is no longer an option but a necessity.”
