Description

Typically, it is expected that individuals with PD will decline or at best maintain their level of function.

It’s time to challenge the norm. Progress is not only possible in individuals with Parkinson’s but should be expected.

Though the variations in presentation can be challenging, this action packed, and skill-focused training explores a tangible framework to:

  • Utilize exercise as medicine and dive into how often, how hard and the specific types that are best suited for individuals with PD
  • Maximize mobility and independence with fall prevention essentials
  • Integrate targeted solutions for every challenge a person with Parkinson’s may encounter including visual dysfunction, hypomimia, freezing of gait and more!
  • Improve function in daily and complex situations with cognitive and motor dual task activities

And best of all? Through an experiential lab, you’ll learn to incorporate key elements that promote recovery in every person’s plan of care including:

  • Aerobic exercise – Skill-based training – Dual-task training – Facial muscle exercise – Visual rehab

You’ll learn exactly what you need to know to see improvements clients you (and they) didn’t realize were possible.
