In this video from Intermountain HealthcareParkinson’s disease patient Michael Foerster talks about how his diagnosis has affected his life. He and Dr. Katherine L. Widnell discuss the benefits of exercise for Parkinson’s disease and how it can help slow down the progression of the disease when used alongside medication and other treatments.
Foerster says that when he exercises, he feels much better and suffers fewer symptoms and they’re less severe. Physical therapist, Laura Jones, explains that exercise can help to make patients feel stronger and counter some of the day-to-day effects of the disease. Used alongside medications and other therapies such as deep brain stimulation, exercise can help Parkinson’s disease patients live a full, active and happy life.
