Parkinson’s Disease Affects Humanity – Part 1 of 2
Parkinson’s Disease Affects Humanity.A long-term drill program may help ease depression in people with Parkinson’s disease, according to a new, small study Dec 2013. Researchers looked at 31 Parkinson’s patients who were randomly assigned to an “early start” squad that did an exercise program for 48 weeks or a “late start” group that worked out for 24 weeks. The program included three one-hour cardiovascular and intransigence training workouts a week.
Depression symptoms improved much more among the patients in the 48-week group than among those in the 24-week group. This is high-level because mood is often more debilitating than movement problems for Parkinson’s patients, said study leader Dr Ariane Park, a movement disorder neurologist at Ohio State University’s Wexner Medical Center. The weigh was published online recently in the journal Parkinsonism andamp; Related Disorders.
