April 18, 2013, 2013: April is the National Parkinson Foundation’s Parkinson’s Awareness Month.

In this episode, physical therapist Terry Ellis underlines the vital role of physical activity in the lives of those with Parkinson disease, which is the second most common degenerative brain disorder after Alzheimer disease.

Although there isn’t a cure for Parkinson disease, studies suggest that exercise programs initiated immediately after diagnosis can have a profound effect on the symptoms and side effects of the disease.
