Exercise adaptations for people with Parkinsons: prescribing tailored exercise to meet individual needs
Historically people with Parkinsons have been under prescribed exercise.
In this session we will look at how you can produce results for this cohort by challenging yourself to understand the research basis for your prescription.
We’ll also inspire you with some fun ways you can adapt your programme for each stage of the condition!
- Exercise is key to treatment of Parkinson’s, the sooner the better.
- Exercise prescription has been well researched and has important elements that will need addressing with each programme.
- Intensity and Power are key messages at each stage of the condition.
- Exercise needs to be fun, adaptive and research led.
