Exercise Programs for Parkinson's Disease
Our exercise services for Parkinson’s disease utilize a variety of treatment approaches and programs designed specifically to combat the physical, emotional and cognitive effects of Parkinson’s disease. Our goal is to provide client specific exercise programs that help clients maintain their highest level of function and independence. Research continually supports that high intensity exercise is neuroprotective and helps manage the symptoms associated with Parkinson’s disease. Our group exercise classes serve a natural and empowering social support group. Our Rock Steady Boxing program uses boxing fundamentals that are heavily focused on balance, footwork, power, and endurance.
Our team of Neuro Exercise Specialists have the ability and skill set to work with clients at all ability levels. Our staff hold special Parkinson’s disease certifications such as PWR!, Rock Steady Boxing, and Delay the Disease. Our facilities are equipped with specialized equipment such as our body weight support track system that enables clients to practice walking without the risk of falling.
