Physical Activity

Physical activity is good for you. It's especially good for you if you have Parkinson's.

Whether you have Parkinson's or live with someone who does, there is no one-size-fits-all approach. Being active for 2.5 hours a week can help manage Parkinson’s symptoms, and has a positive impact both physically and mentally.

Break a sweat. Lift your mood. Live well with Parkinson’s.
