The exercise you enjoy and will do regularly is the best exercise for Parkinson’s.
Walking and balancing exercises, boxing, dancing, treadmill, bike, Tai Chi, yoga, Nordic or pole walking, and swimming are just a few of your options.
Before starting any exercise program, seek assessment by a neurological physiotherapist or exercise physiologist to recommend what levels you need to work at.

Parkinson’s NSW does not advocate that you use exercise alone without prescribed Parkinson’s medication.
For maximum effectiveness, you should combine exercise with an appropriate medication regime. Contact your specialist for advice appropriate to your symptoms and stage of Parkinson’s.
