Parkinson’s Physical Therapy and Exercise

Here at Balance Therapy, we understand that a combination of specific exercises, an intentional mindset, and a supportive environment is a recipe for brain change in people with Parkinson’s disease. And, physical therapy along with exercise is essential in managing your Parkinson’s.

Exercise is a wonderful way to rewire the neural connections in your brain to make movement easier. We offer physical therapy and group exercise classes for Parkinson’s that will challenge your movement and cognitive abilities so that you can enjoy a better life.
