If you’re a person with PD and using a wheelchair, don’t let that wheelchair stop you. Even in advanced stages, there is so much you can do to help you feel better.
Special note: personal trainers – some of these techniques may not be within your scope of practice as per your local regulations. Be sure you know what is within your scope.
We will add more videos and drop down categories in the near future. For now, know that the techniques demonstrated in this section may not appear to accomplish much. However, the amount of relief a client or patient feels may be very significant and help to reduce tension and even pain.
