Physical Therapy for Parkinson's - Knock Out Parkinson’s
The mission of Knock Out Parkinson’s is to give people the power and motivation to battle Parkinson’s disease. The program hopes to improve people with Parkinson’s mental and physical capabilities through movement and enhance their quality of life. This is accomplished through an intensive program encouraging strength, power, speed, endurance, and fun!
There is no cure for Parkinson’s but evidence has shown that people who participate in high intensity exercise programs make positive gains in all stages of the disease, as well as protect important areas of their brain.
Knock Out Parkinson’s is a non-contact boxing program teaching patients footwork, punches, combinations, and various other boxing skills. Caregivers are welcome to participate in the one-on-one sessions. Training is a combination of cardiovascular exercise, weight training, balance skills, and boxing. Prepare to be challenged in a fun and encouraging atmosphere!
