Ask the MD: Exercise and Parkinson’s

Regular exercise is important for anyone and may be especially important for people with Parkinson’s disease (PD). In this video, I discuss the benefits of physical activity, give tips on starting and maintaining a workout regimen, and cover the latest research on exercise’s effect on PD.

Having a hard time getting motivated to exercise and keep up activities? Apathy is a symptom of Parkinson’s disease, and I talk about strategies to overcome these feelings in another “Ask the MD” blog post.

Visit the “Ask the MD” webpage regularly for information on Parkinson’s and related topics. The blog and video series is an educational resource for people with PD and their loved ones who are navigating life with Parkinson’s.

Read more about or watch a webinar on exercise and Parkinson’s.
