Parkinson’s Exercise Classes
Our exercise classes are led by therapists who specialize in neurology and have done advanced training specifically in the treatment of Parkinson’s disease. The exercise classes are challenging enough to create brain change and promote recovery versus maintenance of function so participants will be feeling better, moving better and regaining the ability to participate in roles in their lives that have been stripped from them due to PD!
