PWR!Moves certified therapists are PD-specialized therapists who integrate PWR!Moves into research-based exercise approaches and task-specific training routines such as dance, boxing, pole walking and gait, agility, and flexibility. They develop and prescribe comprehensive functional amplitude-focused programming to address multiple symptoms and personalized goals, and progress the difficulty and complexity of training to adapt for varying disease severity or fitness levels.
This program allows us to reinforce the basal ganglia circuits to allow individuals to move more freely and to have more cognitive function left over when doing so, thereby improving overall quality of life. This Parkinson’s exercise class is suitable for all individuals with PD and allows individuals to improve their overall function by incorporating dual-task and cognitive exercises to allow individuals to be more confident with multi-tasking in the real world.
