Parkinson’s Disease Exercise Tips

No two people who have Parkinson’s suffer from all symptoms or the same symptoms. The degree of any given symptom may vary and appear at any time, early- or late-stage. Here two motor control movement symptoms that may be helped with exercise.

Parkinson’s Gait

It is not uncommon for someone with Parkinson’s disease to experience the feeling of running down an incline and not being able to stop. With practice and neurosensory integrational exercise, this technique can be minimized.

What is Freezing?

Many people with Parkinson’s disease experience “freezing” of gait or motion. It is a unique and disabling clinical phenomenon characterized by brief episodes of inability to step or by extremely short steps that typically occur on initiating gait or on turning while walking.

Often, freezing will occur while walking through doorways, at the beginning of a movement (e.g. getting up from a chair, starting to walk from point A to point B) or other situations. When walking steps may become shorter to the point of shuffling. This may ultimately cause one to stop short of a destination, causing balance to be lost, possibly leading to a fall.

Understanding what happens to the body and helping to remain safe and then return to regular gait patterns takes patience and practice.

Balance

Many who have Parkinson’s disease lose their balance. Falling backwards is quite common. Click here to read more about balance.

Exercise can enhance neuroplasticity

Wikipedia defines neuroplasticity as “the brain’s ability to reorganize itself by forming new neural connections throughout life.” Exercise, by promoting neuroplasticity, may protect and rewire the brain from further degeneration.

How to counteract Parkinson Symptoms
with alternate movement behaviors

These can be practiced and learned best on a “good day”.
Continue to practice so when and if the symptom appears, your brain will remind you what to do.

  1. Stop trying to move when you are frozen. Relax the jaw, relax the body by taking deep breaths.
  2. Step backwards first, then forward.
  3. Look “through” a threshold, doorway or special configuration where you are freezing.
  4. Step over something, rather than just taking a step.
  5. Estimate number of steps it will take to travel a distance.
  6. Think outside the box and instead of trying to take a step, squat once or twice then try to walk or tap the floor, then walk or step backwards.
  7. If you find yourself beginning to shuffle, interrupt it by shifting your movement to a sitting or squatting position (also known as sitting in your hips), or try to step backwards then forwards.
  8. If you feel you may freeze while walking across a room, estimate the number of steps it will take to get you to your destination, then count off as you walk. Try using a metronome.
  9. For Parkinson’s Gait, practice stop and starts. Begin walking (call out green light, then red light) or stop and do a semi-squat/sitting position three times. Have someone (trainer, companion, etc.) stay close to reduce falling. The object is to drive home the contra action of running away.                                                                                                           
  10. Using resistance bands is an excellent way to modify traditional balance exercises for those who are in the beginning or mid stages of the disease.

Kind Words from our Clients

Julie

Mom always says, "Dad worked out with his trainer a week before he passed". It was a blessing that he was in good physical shape up almost until the end and we are very grateful for that. We are so grateful for you and the wonderful trainers Dad had. We were truly blessed.

Rebecca

I enthusiastically recommend Lori Michiel Fitness! My 80 year old Mom had a cyst on her spinal column, and underwent a difficult spine surgery. We knew she had a long road of recovery ahead. Thankfully, as we left Villa Gardens, a Skilled Nursing Facility, they recommended Lori Michiel Fitness! Lori came to Mom’s house and thoroughly interviewed us, listened carefully to Mom's needs, read her neurosurgeon’s reports, and matched us with a Rehab Trainer that perfectly, gently helped Mom safely move and stretch. On top of that, Mom really liked the trainer and enjoyed their sessions. Lori kept in touch throughout Mom’s treatment as a liaison between us and the trainer. She conveyed any concerns we had to the trainer and helped make adjustments to Mom’s program. Lori is a gracious, warm-hearted woman with a passion for helping seniors. She truly gave us her whole heart as as we went through a very challenging time.

Sam Strain – Trainer

I have had the pleasure of working for/with Lori Michiel Fitness since June 2016. I have found Lori to be conscientious, thorough, polite and a joy to work with. Lori has demonstrated numerous times that she understands that we are in the “service industry” and prides herself on giving the best service possible.
Customer care is of the utmost concern to her. She is very knowledgeable about personal training and the workings of the functional human body from a bio-mechanical point of view. She is compassionate about all her clients as they all get her personal touch.

I would feel most comfortable recommending her to anyone that is in need of her services.

Respectfully,

The last time I spoke with my mom she was just so happy with Lori Michiel Fitness. She told me that without your training she wouldn’t be able to move as she well as she is doing now.

My mom is doing very well. She’s getting back into her ceramics studio and making more stuff and seeing her friends.

Rebecca

After my mom’s strokes, we knew we needed to help her become active and improve her balance. She didn’t have a good habit of any exercise and none of the local senior classes were appropriate for her.


I’m so glad we called Lori Michiel Fitness. Lori came to the house, met with my mom, listened to her needs, took a careful medical history and matched her with a trainer. He is a wonderful trainer who comes to the house three times a week to help support mom’s recovery. The trainer really understands senior fitness. He gives the whole family peace of mind that we are doing what we can to prevent another fall and keep mom active. Lori checks in with us regularly to make sure the therapy continues to be appropriate for mom. We’re very grateful to her.

Lori, In a few days it will be one year since I began with your program. I can say now, without a doubt, that I am in a much better place, in so many ways, than I was one year ago. I still remember the day you visited me and Mary and explained what it was that you work to do. (She still marvels about the balloon hat you wore that day.) Your suggestion to pair me with your trainer was spot on. Sometimes I wonder what she does to stay positive when I turn into "grumpy old man"...It was our daughter, Robin, who found out about you, and the rest is history...When it all began, I, as a classically trained cynic, expected to go a few months and then leave it all behind. Just goes to show you what can happen when you work and believe. Hope you're doing well.

I've been working with Lori and her excellent staff since 2011, and my experience has always been positive! Most recently, her personal trainers she's assigned have been a very good "fit" with my clients. The clients have special needs, my older female client has Alzheimer's, and my younger male client had physical disabilities. In addition to the many benefits to their physical health, the trainers have served as friendly visitors, and occasionally have reported concerns regarding their personal care and emotional health, which has been very helpful. Lori and her staff have always been professional and courteous, and I am always kept informed of progress. And I know they really care about my clients, which makes all the difference!

I am very impressed with Lori Michiel Fitness. It has improved the quality of life for my 87-year-old mother-in-law who suffers from moderate dementia and had become weak and unstable due to spending too much time sleeping and being sedentary. From the very thorough initial evaluation to the now twice weekly workout sessions, my mother-in-law is really having fun with the exercises with her personal trainer; I can see the benefits of these sessions. Additionally, I really appreciate the excellent communication with Lori, who always responds in a timely fashion and sends weekly email updates about progress being made. I highly recommend!!

For the past seven years, my clients have reaped the benefits of working with Lori Michiel and her team. My clients are living with less pain, greater strength, endurance and flexibility; fewer falls as well as less depression and more energy for life. Speaking as a Professional Geriatric Care Manager, physical exercise is an integral component of a Care Plan, especially for my clients with health issues. Moving the body is essential to physical, emotional and cognitive well-being and Lori and her trainers know how to safely and effectively engage my clients in an exercise program that is appropriate for their needs.

My trainer has encouraged me all the way, she's my biggest cheerleader. And she is so knowledgeable. She knew exactly which three exercises I could try using the five-pound weights with and which I should not try quite yet.

Lori, I can't tell you how lucky I feel to have found you. What a gift your work is to the senior community.

Sheri L.

My family engaged the services of Lori Michiel for my 77-year-old mother. I was very pleased with Lori's overall professionalism, starting off with in an in-depth health questionnaire, and then physical assessment. She was very engaging, personable and easy to work with. Her approach with my mother (a difficult person) was always right on target, and she was encouraging, positive and upbeat. She would give us reports after each training session to keep us apprised of what went on. I would definitely recommend Lori Michiel to anyone seeking personal training sessions for those over age 50, as she is quite knowledgeable and experienced with the health issues of this population, and appears to have a natural affinity for these individuals.

I just had to tell you, this morning I did three exercises, three repetitions each using FIVE pound weights!!! It was hard, but certainly not impossible. I am so thrilled and excited. I can't remember the last time I was able to lift five pounds - other than dragging in a five-pound bag of groceries from the car! I started in January, barely able to lift two-pound weights and now, eight months later, I can lift five pounds.

I've become more confident in pushing my limits as I learned techniques from Lori that were customized to my age and condition. Before, I would pull back from activities for fear of pain or further injury, but she taught me how to build muscle and stamina progressively and safely. Confidence is built on a series of successes; The Lori Method™ works!
Lori's principles of dynamic stretching revolutionized the way I approach stretching. I've seen a great increase in flexibility and have even built additional strength using her techniques.

Lori and her team were outstanding from A to Z. The personal initial evaluation, the planning, the matching of a trainer to her needs and much more was all completed in a professional and warm manner. My 96-year-old mom benefited greatly for more than a year of training that was delivered with a highly personalized caring touch. She enjoyed the sessions and was always looking forward to them. I give Lori and her team my highest possible recommendation.

Lori is a talented, innovative teacher /trainer. She has helped me better how my body works -- and what is needed to keep it moving! She constantly works around limitations with creative ways to accomplish the exercises and movements needed to build more strength and resilience. In addition to helping me with pain issues, she's helped me become more aware of how important posture and balance are. She's led me through provided me with methods to improve both. She also shares resources regarding my particular pain issues as well as general good health and body maintenance.

Mom's doing great and she really likes her trainer. She's so much more comfortable now and not scared to move - she even rode the exercycle a little in the building gym with her senior helper person the other day, so her trainer has really gotten her self-confidence back. She's also moving better. I can see it, though I'm sure she can't as much. And most importantly, her trainer has done a great job putting her mind at ease about the little aches she will feel from working out. She's not worrying every sore muscle is a heart attack anymore.

I enjoy working with you. You take the time to listen to my issues (and there are many) and give me great advice. You are my support and keep me on track.

I am very thankful for finding you and for your willingness to work with me! You are a wonderful person and I appreciate you very much.

I came to your program literally broken and battered from long-standing health conditions (I'm 86 with Parkinson’s disease). With your trainer’s patience, creativity, goal-setting and motivation techniques I am making good progress. Take the plunge, people, and give yourself some extra bounce to the ounce as you start the New Year.

We went to her doctor today, and mom told the doctor how pleased she is to have a personal trainer to help her stay as strong and balanced as possible.

I want to thank you so much for the donation you gave to MAPS Charities on my mother, Shirley’s, behalf. What a kind gesture and what a worthy charity.

Your fitness program has really helped my mom!! I saw her this week and she is stronger and her balance has really improved. She got up from her chair so much easier!!!

Best news, she's very happy that she started working out and she adores Sam and Rita.She actually looks forward to it.

It's great to have a job that makes a difference in people’s lives. What a blessing you have been to all of us. Thank you so so much for all you do.

Best wishes to you for a beautiful new year.

Love,

...I was just looking on the internet more about “senior fitness” and I found you. I read about you and you really touched my heart.
