Exercise is an important part of healthy living for everyone. For people with Parkinson’s Disease (PD), exercise is more than healthy — it is a vital component to maintaining balance, mobility and activities of daily living. Exercise and physical activity can improve many PD symptoms. These benefits are supported by research. In addition, music therapy has been linked to improvements in movement symptoms, speech, cognitive issues and mental health. It helps people with PD maintain function, express creativity and experience a better quality of life.
Thanks to the support of the Maryland Association for Parkinson Support, Inc., the Myerberg is able to provide the following programs at no cost to those diagnosed with a Parkinsonian disorder.
