Therapies and Parkinson's management

A man with Parkinson's talking to a therapist

There are a number of therapies that can help people with Parkinson’s and offer advice on ways to help manage symptoms.

My specialist suggested a physiotherapist specialising in Parkinson's. I was given exercises that I can do at home and I do regular sessions.

Keeping active and healthy is important for people with Parkinson's.

Therapists are trained to provide advice and recommend exercises and treatments to keep you active and healthy. They are part of a team that can help you manage your condition.

Your GP, specialist or Parkinson’s nurse may be able to refer you to a therapist. Please speak to them before you start any course of therapy.

The main therapies are listed for you below. Find out more about how each one can help.
