About this Event

Whenever possibilities for the deceleration of Parkinson’s are discussed, the topic of Exercise is also addressed. It is undisputedly regarded as the most important single measure that can help the patient cope with the symptoms.

In order to fully appreciate the positive effects of exercising it is helpful to understand how the effects of exercise on the body work on the symptoms of Parkinson’s. We will address general topics like

  • what can exercise do for people with Parkinson's (pwp) to keep fit?
  • what kinds of exercise are suited for pwp?
  • exercising alone, with partner / carer, in groups of patients?
  • what to expect from exercise programs designed specifically for pwp?
  • scientific evidence behind exercise in Parkinson's disease.

The programme takes into account the fact that every participant will have their own personal experiences of exercising. This valuable wealth of experience will serve as the basis for a workshop session. In order to be able to effectively prepare for this session, participants are asked to kindly fill in a questionnaire, that will be sent by separate mail after registering.

DRIG will be hosting this event again in collaboration with the University of Dundee on their premises at
