CEU Course Description
Parkinson's disease (PD) is the second most common neurodegenerative disorder after Alzheimer's disease. Physical rehabilitation is commonly used in patients with PD to improve their health and alleviate the symptoms. The goal of this CEU course is to determine the overall effect of resistance training (RT) on measures of muscular strength in people with PD and identify effective RT interventions to increase strength in people with PD in order to provide evidence-based guidelines. Further, this course compares resistance training with balance training for the improvement of postural control in people with PD. Lastly, this course explores a technology-assisted exercise protocol that is specifically aimed at reducing bradykinesia.
