Hello Nectar of the Neurons Community,
parkinsonsnewstoday.com came out with a great article highlighting different types of exercise that are good for people with Parkinson's Disease. Check out "12 Types of Exercise Suitable for Parkinson's Disease Patients."
Take away points:
- The bottom line is that ALL exercise is great and suitable, but the higher the intensity, the more benefit.
- It is critical to include variety. Do some on your own, some as a group, some with equipment, some without.
- Find something that you can do safely and that challenges you.
- Places like a YMCA have many great group classes for all levels.
