For Geoffrey Rogers Parkinson was an unapproachable disease but at Rush University Medical Center, where Rogers, then 64, sustained a second viewpoint, he added to his knowledge that he could participate in a new clinical trial for those with the neurodegenerative condition.
A team of researchers at Northwestern Medicine and the University Of Colorado School Of Medicine were seeking if high or moderate power exercise was risk less for patients with Parkinson’s disease. Would it assist with the disease’s indicators the enterprising depletion of muscle control, tremors, and stiffness?
The answer ‘yes’ was present which was sought after five long years. Expanding malady gravity in early-stage Parkinson’s disease patients can be decelerated with a few days of exercise weekly. According to the result of the trial published, it was found that forceful exercise is a risk less method to possibly postpone development of Parkinson’s disease.
Daniel Corcos, one of the lead authors of the study and a professor of physical therapy and human movement sciences at Northwestern’s Feinberg School of Medicine asks a question that if there is any disease for which exercise is not good. He could not find any disease for which exercise is not beneficial.
According to the Parkinson’s Foundation, there are over 1 million people suffering from Parkinson’s in America. This figure breaks all records and surges ahead of muscular dystrophy, Lou Gehrig’s disease and multiple sclerosis patients. Sixty thousand are confirmed across the U.S. each year.
