Hello, my daughter has Early Onset Parkinson’s . I know in States you have Rock Steady Boxing which helps many people. I was wondering what excercise regimes do you find helpful that is available in the UK. Would you consider Rock Steady if it was available here?
Can anyone recommend exercises for a person with left side stiffness, left side tremors, left foot drag? I live in the Boonies and have to drive 45 mins to a gym so I work out at home. I have a treadmill, an eliptical, and some free weights. I attempt some of the beach body ( Slim in Six ) workouts a few times a week too.
My physio here in UK was raving about it. There are very few certified instructors in the U.K, but my physio now is accredited and she is taking classes.
Specially designed for P.D.patients It is circuit training especially designed for parkinson patients. Most exercises can be done sitting or standing AND its greàt fun!

I realize the importance of exercise with PD. Does anyone have any suggestions for exercises that I can try? I have a bad knee and back and and no balance and have to walk with a cane. I haven't been able to find exercises that I can do standing. I only do leg lifts when I'm sitting in a chair and leg lifts and leg bends when I'm laying down.

What types exercise do you engage in? Do you feel that exercise helps improve your symptoms? How much or how often?
I have had many falls. Only bad result so far (outside of bruising, soreness) is a broken rib. Chiro has me doing balance exercises next to a door/wall, standing on one leg at a time. PD exercise leader suggest wrapping/tightening leg and butt muscles as much as possible on the standing leg. Other leg is held off the ground/floor as long as you can maintain balance. Look straight ahead (I almost always look down.)
Does anyone have a way of balancing they'd like to share?
This suggested post is specifically targeted to people with PD. Apparently Invigorate Physical Therapy provides you an exercise plan every Sunday for you to complete for 4 weeks to commit to 20 minutes of exercise every day to improve Parkinsons along with some exercise videos on YouTube and I am wondering if anyone has ever signed up.
I am very interested in finding aParkinsons exercise group. I am 71 years old, still work part time, but really don't enjoy exercise. Thinking maybe being with other people would motivate me.
Enjoyed the BIG exercise class at Scripps in San Diego as well as LOUD for voice. Will miss them.
