How Posture Affects Walking

Really good posture is helpful to take those bigger steps, get a better heel to toe contact with the floor and to avoid that shuffling or where I kind of land with my foot flat. However, if I can PWR!

Quality of Life and Parkinson

QOL is one of hundreds of medical acronyms, but at the end of the day, it’s the most important one.
