People with Parkinson’s can GET BETTER and STAY BETTER with EXERCISE!
Welcome to the Parkinson Exercise Revolution.
The PWR!Gym® is a one-of-a-kind community neurofitness center located in the beautiful Sonoran Desert, in Tucson, AZ. We specialize in proactive research-based Parkinson-specific rehab, fitness, and wellness programming all in one facility! PWR!Gym offers a unique solution to status quo in rehab paradigms. For example, people with Parkinson disease rarely receive physical, occupational, or speech therapy services even once in a lifetime. And for those that do, they may not see a therapist that is specialized in Parkinson disease and it is usually not a PROACTIVE approach.
The basic and clinical science research on exercise and Parkinson disease is compelling!
No other single intervention or treatment is associated with such a diverse array of benefits as exercise for individuals with PD. Physical activity for people with Parkinson disease not only results in positive improvements in symptoms (emotional, cognitive, physical, and non-motor), but is may also a physiological modifier of the disease process! This means greater levels of physical activity may slow disease progression. Can you imagine if there was a pill that could simultaneously have all these benefits, at minimal cost and with virtually no side effects?
Don’t wait! Get Started NOW! Use it or Lose it!
Even if you don’t think you have problems with mobility or fitness, NOW is the time to start. Research shows that people are less active and have already withdrawn from LIFE at diagnosis! Gait quality deteriorates in the first 18 months despite medications! Contact us, find out what you CAN do to GET BETTER and STAY BETTER! Our PWR!4Life model starts with rehab at diagnosis and then cycles from community and back to rehab for life! We specialize in education, empowerment, and setting goals for exercise, fitness, function, stress management, nutrition, keep you doing what you like to do.
