Why is it so important to stay active?  Recent studies support the value of regular exercise in managing the symptoms of Parkinson’s disease. In addition to enhancing physical abilities, exercise improves cognitive functions, overall mood, a sense of well-being. It can also help decrease depression. For most people with Parkinson’s disease, exercise can be an important tool for managing the disease.
