Exercise is an important part of a healthy life for everyone. But for individuals with Parkinson’s Disease, exercise is key to managing symptoms and improving mobility and balance. Exercise also makes daily activities easier. In fact, the Parkinson's Outcomes Project – the largest-ever clinical study of Parkinson’s – found that people with the condition who exercised at least 2.5 hours a week had a better quality of life than those who didn't exercise.
