Has anyone purchased a Theracycle, I'm looking into one, although i'ts expensive, I've heard a couple good things about them. I have bad freezing and I'm told this would help. I appreciate your opinions.
Thank you,

The Big program? This is taken from the internet "LSVT BIG trains people with Parkinson disease (PD) to use their body more normally. People living with PD or other neurological conditions often move differently, with gestures and actions that become smaller and slower. They may have trouble with getting around, getting dressed and with other activities of daily living. LSVT BIG effectively trains improved movements for any activity, whether “small motor” tasks like buttoning a shirt or “large motor” tasks like getting up from sofa or chair or maintaining balance while walking. The treatment improves walking, self-care and other tasks by helping people “recalibrate” how they perceive their movements with what others actually see. It also teaches them how and when to apply extra effort to produce bigger motions – more like the movements of everyone around them."

@A MyParkinsonsTeam Member - check your posture. exercise. stretch. pray. Here's hoping these help with your pain. If all else fails, there are always hemp products and alcohol...

I could ride a bike a the first 5 years of my diagnosis but now my balance is of and If I exercise too long or too hard, i pull muscles and pay for it in fatigue for two or three days. Doing an activity like a chore while listening to a book or playing trivia activates the mental and physical sides. In fact i read somewhere that the only effective and non harmful exercise program for people with parkinsons is the BIG program.
