Yesterday, I started the PD Warrior programme. It's a combination of intense physical exercise and mental exercise. It originated in Australia where it's had promising results. You can google PD warrior and a lot of info will come up.
I live in the UK and I managed to find a hospital a couple of hours away that has a private physio clinic with staff who have trained in this. Yesterday consisted of an assessment plus a long session with a physio to show me the exercises. I now try them out for two weeks, then return to check I'm doing them properly. After that, I do the 'ten week challenge' for, er, ten weeks.
Some baseline measurements were taken in terms of balance, dexterity and so on, and these will be reassessed as I move through the programme.
This isn't intended to replace the 'usual' exercise programme of cycling, weights etc that I do in the gym, but to stand alongside. I have to do it everyday for about 25 minutes.
It was a very tiring day - the assessment and session with the physio took two hours, on top of four hours travelling and I'm tired today. But cautiously optimistic! I'll keep you posted on progress. Before my PD diagnosis I was very unfit. I'm no athlete now - my endurance is rubbish. But I'm much fitter than I was. Life is strange.
