Exercise Helps Reduce Risk of Falls for Some Parkinson’s Patients.
A new clinical trial has found that home-based exercises focused on balance and leg strengthening may help individuals with milder Parkinson’s disease symptoms reduce their risk of falling down by as much as 70%. More research is needed to determine whether a program with closer supervision can help prevent falls in individuals with more advanced Parkinson’s cases.
