This web seminar has been created to teach participants the impact of Parkinson’s disease on stamina, stability and strength, in order to motivate individuals to exercise. It will address the impact Parkinson’s disease has on strength, endurance and balance, as well as the evidence that supports specific exercises to improve each domain. To translate this knowledge into action, we will discuss how to motivate people to exercise and how to keep them in the fight against Parkinson’s disease through activity and exercise.
Participants in this web seminar will be able to:
• Discuss the impact of Parkinson’s disease on strength, endurance and balance;
• Describe the role of exercise and the evidence-based impact it may have on strength, endurance and balance; and,
• Explain tips and strategies to overcome barriers to exercise for people with Parkinson’s disease.
