Parkinson’s Disease May Be Treated by Regular Exercise
A new study confirms that regular exercise of any kind is a good medicine for people suffering from Parkinson’s disease. Although physical activity seems impossible for some Parkinson’s patients, it can provide a long-term influence, improving gait and reducing the risk of falls according to this research.
This study measured the combined outcomes of more than 100 studies conducted during the last 30 years on the effect of the exercise in patients with Parkinson’s disease. It demonstrated that physical activity positively influences on patients, especially on their strength, flexibility and balance.
Dr Andrew Feigin, a neurologist at the Cushing Neuroscience Institute in Manhasset, N.Y., has some suggestions for choosing exercise. He believes that water aerobics or swimming is good because there is no risk of falling. He also recommends a treadmill if walking outside is too difficult.
