If you have Parkinson’s, the sooner you begin a tailored exercise program, the better
Treating patients with Parkinson’s Disease is a highly specialised area of Exercise Physiology and one that very few practitioners are proficient in. It demands a detailed understanding of the pathology and primary impairments of the condition in order to treat and manage you most effectively.
Our accredited Exercise Physiologist, Nicole Armstrong has a special interest and many yeas’ experience working with patients with a range of neurological conditions, including Parkinson’s Disease.
Appreciating that no two people with Parkinson’s will experience their condition in the same way, Nicole begins with a detailed one-on-one assessment to test a number of functions including, your movement, cognition, balance, core stability, and flexibility.
Nicole will also take the time to get to know as much about you as possible, from your medical history and the type of lifestyle you lead, to your goals. She will then tailor an exercise and therapy program with a strong focus on self-management, specifically for you.
The key to remember is that the earlier you get started on a tailored program, the more effective it will be to help slow the progression of your Parkinson’s symptoms.
