Exercise Class for Parkinsons Disease
At Dublin Physiotherapy Clinic, we use our extensive experience in Neurophysiotherapy to run exercise classes specifically tailored for patients with a diagnosis of Parkinsons Disease. Guided by the latest in evidence-based practice, including the European Guidelines for Parkinson’s, our classes are structured to maximise the functional benefits for every client. Making use of our fully equipped gym facilities, our programmes are designed to target the key symptoms of PD, notably:
- freezing and shuffling in gait,
- balance impairment,
- difficulty with transfers,
- decreasing range of movement
- poor posture.
In order to achieve this, we include a wide variety of exercises to improve strength, flexibility and cardiovascular fitness. A low client-to-staff ratio ensures every individual achieves a safe and effective workout in a welcoming and supportive atmosphere.
