Exercise Training and Parkinson's Disease: Placebo or Essential Treatment?
Reuter, Iris; Engelhardt, Martin
Physician and Sportsmedicine, v30 n3 p43-50 Mar 2002
Exercise training is often recommended for people with Parkinson's disease, though there is debate about the pathophysiologic cause of impaired movement in Parkinsonism which makes it difficult to develop a specific exercise treatment for symptoms that include hypokinesia, tremor, and muscular rigidity. Most published studies show a benefit of exercise training. An overview is presented of the most essential studies. (SM)
