Parkinson’s Disease Affects Humanity – Part 2 of 2
More than half of Parkinson’s patients have depression, Park noted in a university news release. “We forward exercise to all of our Parkinson’s patients. Currently, there is no consensus on a standardized physical exercise regimen with regard to type, frequency and intensity”.
So “The literature supports that any routine that improves somatic fitness is good for Parkinson’s disease – and that can include walking, swimming, tai chi or even dancing. We just want patients to move on a regular basis. Not only will they move better, but they will surface better,” Park explained in the news release enhancer. Parkinson’s disease, a progressive neurodegenerative disorder, affects more than one million Americans.
