Parkinson’s Disease At FYZICAL
Parkinson’s Disease is a chronic and progressive movement disorder, involving the malfunction of vital nerve cells in the brain. Parkinson’s primarily affects nerve cells that control movement and coordination, sometimes causing the person to lose normal movement.
While symptoms and experiences vary from person to person, the primary motor signs of Parkinson’s Disease include the following:
- Tremor of the hands, arms, legs, jaw and face
- Slowness of movement
- Stiffness of the limbs and trunk
- Impaired balance and coordination
In addition to physical therapy techniques, FYZICAL incorporates light boxing and sparring into treatment for our Parkinson’s patients. This non-contact fitness curriculum includes boxing drills and conditioning for optimal agility, speed, endurance, accuracy, hand-eye coordination, footwork and overall strength.
