Exercise

Exercise benefits all people with Parkinson’s, regardless of how long you have been living with the condition. The precise benefits of exercise are dependent on the type of exercise you undertake and how far Parkinson’s has progressed. Dance, exercise and boxing groups designed specifically for people with Parkinson’s are popular.

Group of athletes running on ocean front. Runners in sportswear training together outdoors.

A range of exercise groups are available across metro and regional South Australia.
