We are excited to share a recent zoom interview with you all. This is Molly from UpENDing Parkinsons (Website: https://www.upendparkinsons.com/ ). Take a minute to check out her website.
Although some research has started in Europe, little has been done in the USA regarding rock climbing as a viable treatment option for PD. Here is one of the articles: https://clinicaltrials.gov/ct2/show/NCT04569981
Rock climbing is great for building strength, flexibility, endurance, and confidence all without the risk of falling. We like that it is something unique too. Your brain will get bored when you repeat the same activity over and over again. It is one of the reasons why we like boxing so much. It is always challenging you in different ways. We think rock climbing is a really exciting new possibility for those with PD.
Check out the video and Molly's website. If this got you motivated, comment below with some pictures of you rock climbing!
