Functional Transformation Mobile Rehab is now certified in PWR – Parkinson’s Wellness Recovery. This program allows us to work with patients living with Parkinson’s and the everyday challenges you face. PWR can help slow the progressional effects of Parkinson’s. Our certified therapist will come out and work with you to design your wellness PWR program to fit you. Want to know more about what PWR!Moves is all about?
PWR!Moves are the core of our PD-specific functional exercise and physical therapy programs. The Basic 4 PWR!Moves are designed to each target a skill known to deteriorate in people with Parkinson disease, which often lead to loss of mobility and function. The PWR!Moves can be practiced in multiple positions, made progressively more physically and cognitively challenging, and be used differently to target each person’s unique symptoms individually.
PWR!Moves help you mitigate symptoms and rebuild functionality, no matter how you incorporate them into your life. They’re beneficial in stand-alone group exercise classes, integrated into your daily activities and routines (such as activities of daily living, recreation, sports, and hobbies), in physical and exercise therapy settings.
Exercise can help those with Parkinson’s in many ways. Not only does it help with boosting heart and lung function, but it also helps with slowing the loss of cognitive function, improving balance, gait, flexibility, motor coordination, grip strength, and tremor. You can go dancing or biking, do yoga or tai chi, walk on a treadmill, or do flexibility training. Find something you enjoy and go do it!
We recommend the below equipment for those performing the PWR!Moves or teaching PWR!Moves. Our faculty, staff, and gym members all work with a variety of equipment to improve overall function, mobility, strength and flexibility.
We have two great local resources here in our area working hard to provide a better quality of life for people living with Parkinson’s and their caregivers. You can find out more about them by visiting their websites at Parkinson’s Place of Sarasota and Neuro Challenge Foundation for Parkinson’s in Venice.
