Exercise Helps Parkinson's Disease

Posted: 04.15.2014

Exercise may play a role in the prevention of Parkinson's and may also help maintain health and independence in those with Parkinson's.  New research revealed that people who had been physically active through their 30's and 40's were 35% less likely to develop Parkinson's compared to those who were inactive.  There is also evidence that exercise may help slow the progression of the disease in those Parkinson's patients who continue to exercise.  Exercise seems to improve cognitive and motor skills and increase longevity in those with the disease.
