Course Description:

Exercise can change the Parkinson brain! For persons living with PD, a disease specific approach to exercise is medically necessary to improve the quality of their life. This course will introduce the latest evidence based etiology, prevalence, anatomy, physiology and medication needs of the person with idiopathic PD as well as the types of evidence based exercise that are known to induce behavioral and brain based anatomical changes. The concept of a Parkinsonism disease process vs the specific degenerative nature and location of damage in idiopathic Parkinson’s will be discussed to understand the motor (i.e. bradykinesia, rigidity and tremor), non-motor (i.e. decreased cognition and motivation) and autonomic (sleep, constipation and pain symptoms) symptoms of PD across the disease severity. Clinicians will be able to successfully address the needs of the whole patient to optimize function and improve lives. We know that exercise can improve strength, agility and fitness level, but that is just the beginning! Evidence will be introduced that exercise is medicine for persons with PD when delivered with the appropriate skill and aerobic essentials addressed. Therapists will leave with numerous new exercise and intervention strategies to use in the clinic immediately. It is NEVER too late for persons with Parkinson Disease (PD) to change their function and improve their lives. Please join the revolution to change the Parkinson’s brain!
