3 things we know about physical activity if your symptoms are mild
It's best to focus on vigorous physical activity that works the whole body.
Regular physical activity can help improve your strength, balance, posture and flexibility, and keep your heart and lungs healthy.
If you already play a sport and are active - keep it up and add vigorous physical activity to your routine. Being active for 2.5 hours a week can help manage Parkinson’s symptoms, and has a positive impact both physically and mentally.
