Parkinson’s Therapy Services – Sarasota Florida

Exercise May Delay Onset of Parkinson's Disease

Parkinson’s Disease is a progressive neurological disorder that results in the loss of movement and coordination. There is currently no cure for Parkinson’s Disease, but there are many treatments available that can help improve the patient’s quality of life. Some of the most common treatments include medication, therapy, and surgery.


Working with a therapist can help by showing you different exercises. These types of exercises have been shown to help improve symptoms of Parkinson’s disease. They can help improve balance, movement, and flexibility. It can also help reduce fatigue and stress with some patients.

Improving Mobility and Balance

Another benefit seen with ongoing therapy is in the area of improved movement and the ability to do daily activities. Therapy helps if you are having mobility problems, such as difficulty standing, walking, writing, lifting, or moving. Therapy will include strengthening and stretching exercises to restore movement and coordination and the use of assistive devices to help you carry out activities more comfortably. Therapy can help you move with less pain, allowing you a more active lifestyle. Therapists aim to improve your movement, functional ability, and overall wellbeing and quality of life. They use manual therapy methods to improve the alignment of bones and flexibility of soft tissues, helping to reduce pain and improve function. Our therapists are also trained to work with patients who require assistive devices (such as braces, walkers, canes, wheelchairs, standers, and shower chairs) and can teach you to use them correctly and safely.

Being able to perform these types of movements and exercise can also help reduce anxiety and depression. 

In conclusion, while there is no cure for the disease, many treatments can help improve the quality of life for those living with this disease. For those looking for treatment, Functional Transformation Clinic has options including LSVT BIG® and PWR !Moves
