Be Active!

An Exercise Program for People with Parkinson's Disease

Be Active Feb2008
The research available suggests that exercise can help people with Parkinson’s disease improve mobility and accomplish daily tasks with greater ease. Studies reveal that people with PD can improve their mobility, flexibility, strength and fitness level with exercise.

This program is designed to help you be active, keep moving and feel good! The exercises (Part I) and mobility hints (Part 2) in this booklet have been developed to target the strength, mobility and flexibility concerns that are common among people with Parkinson’s disease. The information is designed to be easy to follow and safe. However, there may be some activities or exercises that aren’t right for you. If you are unsure whether an exercise is right for you, a physical therapist might be able to help.
