Low-Intensity Exercise, Drug Combo Can Help Parkinson's Patients, Studies Show
Date:4/13/2011

dy made walking long distances "almost like self-physical therapy" for Parkinson's patients because the regimen essentially helps train their brains to walk in a more stable manner.

He and Shulman agreed that Parkinson's patients should take these findings to heart and integrate long, brisk walks into their daily routines.

"Patients understandably want to know how they can slow the progression of the disease and unfortunately we don't have any medication proven to [do that]," said Shulman, also a fellow at the American Academy of Neurology. "But people who remain more active . . . can improve in terms of gait and mobility, and they're highly likely to delay their progression over time."

Because these studies were presented at a medical meeting, the data and conclusions should be viewed as preliminary until published in a peer-reviewed journal.
