Exercise with more complex symptoms

If your symptoms are more complex, focus on everyday movements and activities you have difficulty with. This could be practising getting up from a chair.

Supported workouts can help you stay safe and feel confident. Try chair-based exercise or exercise standing up while holding on to something sturdy.

Talk to a physiotherapist who knows about Parkinson’s for more advice and to plan the right exercise for you, especially if you're just getting started.

Many of our local groups across the UK offer exercise classes specifically designed for people with Parkinson’s, at all stages of the condition.
