Parkinson's disease treatment
can be supplemented with exercise.
This is according to the president and co-founder of The Cure Parkinson's
Trust Tom Isaacs, who believes that sufferers will see multiple benefits if
they participate in physical activities.
"These include the effects exercise has on lessening stress, improving
general body function and sleeping patterns together," he stated.
He added that exercise can also bring about less tangible changes such as
improving confidence and giving patients a more positive attitude to life.
Mr Isaacs' comments came after the English National Ballet announced that it
was launching classes for people with Parkinson's disease, as a recent
scientific study in Spain had highlighted that dancing could help to control the
symptoms of the disease.
The dance school hopes the initiative will help improve the quality of life
However, Mr Isaacs said that the disease was a very "individual
condition" and sufferers should try a wide variety of exercise to see
which is most suitable to them.
