How PWR! Helps with Parkinson

“Physical activity is an important aspect of overall health and disease prevention, and it’s especially vital for people with Parkinson’s disease (PD). Regular exercise can help improve balance, mobility, and the ability to navigate everyday life, and there is also research to indicate that it can actually improve many Parkinson’s symptoms. 

According to Stanford Medicine, for people with PD, exercise is just as important as taking your medications on . . .”
