Presented by Daniel Corcos, PhD

1 CEU Hour

Compelling evidence has emerged over the past 5 to 10 years that exercise has symptomatic benefit for people with Parkinson's disease. There is also very strong preclinical evidence that exercise may modify the course of the disease such that it progresses at a slower rate. The symptomatic and disease modifying effects of exercise will be discussed.
