After Alzheimer's disease, Parkinson's is the most common neurological disorder in the United States, most notably causing physical tremors in the hands, arms, legs, jaw, and face. Other symptoms can include stiffness, physical instability, impaired balance, and a loss of coordination. With sixty thousand Americans getting diagnosed with PD every year, chances are good that you or someone you know is working their way through this disease every day.
If this is you, or someone you know, then we've got some physical therapy routines that can help you combat the decline of motor function...by utilizing aerobic exercise to halt cognitive decline! Following a well-planned physical therapy regimen can actually help improve verbal communication, memory, and attention span. Turns out, aerobic exercise can help develop new neurological synapses, which will improve learning cognition, memory, and motor skills.
