Let’s Talk Parkinson’s: Different exercises for different benefits
Date: Tuesday 12 March, 2024
Time: 10:30am
Topic: Exercise is second only to medications for slowing down the progression of Parkinson’s and maintaining balance, mobility and daily living activities. Exercise increases dopamine production, thereby improving symptoms such as balance and mobility, as well as depression, constipation, and cognitive skills. Exercises come in different forms for the benefit of not just our physical wellbeing but also our mental mindset, spiritual selves, emotional sense, and social aspect.
Presenter: Dr Melissa McConaghy, specialist Neurological Physiotherapist and founder of PD Warrior and INSIGHT global conference. She has been working with Parkinson’s patients for 20 years and was recently awarded Australian Physiotherapist of the Year.
