Exercise program York, PA

6 posts in this topic

Exercise is a great way to manage your PD. It's one way you can fight the progression. I am working with a great trainer. We are doing a program that includes both physical and mental excercises and will include the PWR4LIFE program with a PWR certified instructor. PWR (Parkinson wellness recovery) was developed by the PT who developed LSVT BIG & loud program  If you are looking for one in the YORK, PA area- reach out!

I start the LSVT Big thing tomorrow at 1 in the afternoon, then M-Th for four weeks. I hope it helps with balance some. I started Sinemet about a month ago with general good results. I'm still getting dosage dialed in properly with meals and such, but the stuff most surely works. I went to high with the dosage, and now I'm pulling back a tad. I don't know if this will mess up the PT person in the Big program. I don't have actual Parkinson's, but Dementia with Lewy Bodies, and the Parkinsonian stuff is really going strong right now. I often wonder if Alzheimer's, Lewy Bodies, and Parkinson's are really just variations of the same thing.

Look into www.pwr4life.org when you finish your LVST program. You can search their site for a local certified instructor or therapist. Good luck! Becky Farley who developed both programs knows her stuff!!
