EXERCISE WINS….AGAIN! THIS TIME FOR PARKINSON’S DISEASE

A recent study showed that Tai Chi exercise improved balance & strength, and may have improved safety from falls in patients with Parkinson’s Disease.
Now, the focus in Parkinson’s is on efforts to maintain functionality through exercise. This study looked at 185 patients with Parkinson’s over a 6 month period.
So……the obvious is proven once again. Exercise, in all of it’s forms, provides benefits in neurologic conditions…..Time to get your tennis shoes on and go to it.
