Living Well Starts Here

Become your own advocate to lead a healthier lifestyle. Exercise and nutrition are important for everyone; but especially those living with Parkinson’s as exercise has been proven to slow the progression of the disease.

What Type of Exercise Should I Do?

To help manage the symptoms of PD, be sure your exercise program includes a few key ingredients:

  • Flexibility (stretching) exercises
  • Aerobic activity
  • Resistance training or strengthening exercises

These elements are included in many types of exercise. Biking, running, Tai chi, yoga, Pilates, dance, weight training, non-contact boxing, qi gong and more — all have positive effects on PD symptoms.
