Exercise Can Change the Parkinson Brain!

Exercise can change the Parkinson brain! And that means that you can significantly improve quality of life for your Parkinson’s Disease (PD) patients.

It isn’t sufficient to assess just one thing when addressing the needs of your patients with PD. So, in this 3 hour, live webinar, you’ll learn about a variety of assessment tools that can be used to specifically evaluate PD deficits. Valerie presents a well-rounded exercise approach, which includes tips on motivation and cognition. You’ll also learn about PD medications for all stages of the disease so you can monitor their effectiveness and impact on the therapy you provide.

Evaluation results guide your intervention choices. And videos of real patients are used to demonstrate both evaluation tools and interventions across all stages of PD. The videos, which allow you to see real patient responses, clarifies the reciprocal relationship between what the patient’s anatomy tells us and what the assessments reveal.

This 3 hour webinar is packed full of research-based, clinically relevant information that can help you provide the best care for your patients with PD. Participants tell us that the videos of therapists working with real patients are powerful learning tools.

Best of all is the opportunity for you to interreact with and ask questions of one the leading rehabilitation experts in the treatment of patients with PD. Join us.
