Parkinson’s Disease is a neurodegenerative condition that occurs due to changes to an area in the brain called the basal ganglia. The main function of the basal ganglia is initiating and coordinating movement. Parkinson’s disease is often characterised by slowness of movement, difficulty initiating movement, flexed posture, smaller steps, freezing or slowness in walking, difficulty multitasking and reduced balance. Due to these symptoms, individuals living with Parkinson’s Disease often find everyday activities more difficult and experience reduced independence.
Medical and surgical interventions continue to develop in the treatment of Parkinson’s disease. However, despite these treatments, people’s symptoms gradually progress due to the degenerative nature of the condition.
With the rising case numbers, returning to exercise post-COVID is becoming an increasing concern for many of us. Ongoing effects of the virus can make being physically active challenging, which may even begin to take a toll on your mental health.
