Davis Phinney Foundation Launches Exercise-Focused Tools to Help People Live Well With Parkinson's Disease
Date:10/19/2010

r; Matthew Ford, PT, M.A., Ph.D., The University of Alabama at Birmingham; and Lee Dibble, PT, Ph.D., ATC, University of Utah – and people living with Parkinson's disease who demonstrate the importance of exercise and share insight on incorporating exercise into a Parkinson's disease treatment plan. The DVD is provided at no charge for people enrolled in the Foundation's Every Victory Counts™ self-care management program (www.everyvictorycounts.org), which connects people with Parkinson's disease to a wealth of valuable educational materials, including an interactive manual that empowers people to live well with Parkinson's disease today and take a more active role in managing their care.

"Exercise should be part of the standard of care for Parkinson's disease as the growing body of scientific evidence strongly demonstrates the effectiveness of exercise as an essential tool for maintaining balance, mobility and daily quality of life, not to mention the possibility that exercise might actually protect nerve cells and slow disease progression in the brain," said Dr. Ellis.

Rob Biddle, 54, who is featured in the DVD training with Dr. Hirsch, follows an exercise plan that consists of spin classes, resistance training, treadmill walking and balance training at his local YMCA. "I am committed to this exercise routine to address my Parkinson's symptoms and now feel better than when I was 30 years old," Biddle said. "I am convinced that if I continue exercising, it will help me maintain my strength and balance longer.  I would encourage anyone with Parkinson's disease to begin an exercise program."

In addition to the "Exercise and Parkinson's: Questions and Answers from the Experts" DVD, the Davis Phinney Foundation has also developed "Top 10 Tips" guide for exercising with Parkinson's and the research that supports them. Among the tips (
