Parkinson's exercise video features UAB input

Written by


Exercise is good for most people, even those with Parkinson's Disease. Now, UAB associate professor of physical therapy Matt Ford, Ph.D., is helping patients through a new exercise DVD, "Exercise and Parkinson's: Questions and Answers from the Experts," produced by the Davis Phinney Foundation.


Ford, one of the experts featured, offers tips and tools designed to reinforce exercise as a core strategy for living well with Parkinson's because it helps build a healthier heart, lungs, muscles and may have a neuro-protective effect. The DVD is available at www.davisphinneyfoundation.org.
