Functional Transformation Mobile Rehab now offers PWR! Parkinson’s Treatment

Parkinson’s Wellness Recovery (PWR!) is a research and evidence based exercise, recovery, and wellness program for treating Parkinson’s Disease. This program is specially designed to slow, stop, and even reverse postural issues, slow movements, freezing and other symptoms that are common with PD. 

The program is highly effective and the therapists at Functional Transformation Mobile Rehab are specially trained and certified to treat people with Parkinson’s. The program can be individualized and made low or high intensity based on the findings of the therapist and the needs of the patient. 

There are four basic PWR! Moves. PWR! UP, PWR! Twist, PWR! Shift and PWR! Step. Each move can be completed from a standing or sitting position, on all fours, or even lying down to provide the maximum benefit for each individual. Each move targets a specific symptom of Parkinson’s and is easily modified. The movements are slow and rhythmic, not intense. They require sustained effort, like yoga, and are just as gentle on the joints. As the patient improves, the challenge of the exercises increases allowing for continued improvement and function in daily life. 

Your therapist will tell you that the moves are extremely beneficial, but quality matters. If you put in half the effort, you’ll see half the results. According to the latest research in neuroplasticity and rehabilitation, your efforts in therapy have a direct impact on your brain, actually changing your brain, which can stop the progression of PD. Evidence has been around for years that exercise is beneficial for our brains and it is certainly true with PWR! and Parkinson’s Disease. 

Also consider that exercise has been shown to improve symptoms like apathy, anxiety, and trouble sleeping which many Parkinson’s patients have. 

Although designed for Parkinson’s, PWR! can be used for other health challenges, as well. Tailoring the exercises to patients with other types of balance issues is something that a certified therapist can do.
