The benefits of exercise for reducing disability in people with Parkinson disease (PD)
are becoming more evident.
Optimal benefit, however, requires regular and sustained participation.
The benefits of exercise for people with PD are well documented.
People with PD who participate in exercise programs have reported
better quality of life.
and demonstrated better walking ability,
balance, strength, flexibility, and cardiovascular fitness,
compared with those who did not exercise.
Exercise does help with long-term management of PD.
So the old saying "use it or lose it."
