High Intensity Exercise: The Evidence and Application in Parkinson’s Disease
Therapy treatment for Parkinson’s Disease (PD) is often oversimplified and defined as by one or two global approaches. This course will further the discussion of the various subtypes of Parkinson’s Disease and explore the evidence supporting high intensity exercise in all forms of PD and Parkinsonism’s. Strength, muscular endurance, cardiopulmonary endurance, balance and agility will be addressed as related to PD. We will provide video and case study application across 4 different classifications of Parkinson’s Disease and reveal applicable treatment strategies within each.
At the end of this course, the participant will be able to:
- Apply the latest evidence to best individualize a balance program for individuals with Parkinson’s and Parkinsonism diseases.
- Apply evidence for individualize interventions as related to subtypes of PD.
- Apply principles of the ICF motivational and psychological characteristics in management of patients with PD and Parkinsonism’s.
