MOVE! Parkinson’s Exercise Group
Under the supervision of a physiotherapist and rehabilitation assistant, this series of semi-private classes aims to help persons living with Parkinson’s Disease to incorporate physical activity into their routine. Due to COVID-19 restrictions, in-person classes are currently suspended until further notice. However, online virtual classes or 30-minute individual Move exercise classes can be arranged.
The sessions include a series of evidence-based Parkinson’s-specific exercises based on PWR! Moves and LSVT/BIG. Specific attention will be paid to improving and maintaining functional movement, flexibility, balance and cardiovascular conditioning. Move! Sessions run for 8 weeks at a time, and are limited to 2 participants per session.
Prior to participating in these sessions, each new client will meet with the supervising physiotherapist for an assessment to determine each client’s individual goals and challenges. Class fees are covered under most extended health benefit plans.
Due to COVID-19 restrictions, in-person classes are currently suspended until further notice. You can indicate your interest in participating when they resume by calling our office to leave your name and contact information. For now, MOVE exercise classes can be offered virtually, or as an individual 30-minute session. Please call our office for further information.
