Move BIG! exercises for Parkinson's

Movement with someone with Parkinson's Disease can begin to become small, slow and rigid. The positive news is with frequent and intentional practice of LARGE movements like high steps, big arm swings and large lunge steps we can retrain muscles and the brain to intentionally move bigger. Other benefits of practicing large movements include improved balance, coordination and overall wellbeing. Large movement practice can be a vital tool in potentially slowing the progression of the disease.
