|2. Exercises for People with Parkinson
Parkinson is a long-term neurological condition that causes difficulties in initiation, co-ordination and control of movements such as standing up and walking. Imbalance of falls are also common, and may lead to injuries. As movement becomes difficult, people with Parkinson are prone to become inactive, resulting in declining strength, joint flexibility and fitness levels.
Regular exercise has been shown to delay the progression of Parkinson and stop the vicious cycle of functional decline. In this book, you will find exercises to improve your flexibility, strength, balance, mobility and endurance.
