Impact of physical activity on Parkinson’s disease progression, a longitudinal study

Takeaway

  • This study adds to the growing body of evidence that physical activity is beneficial for treatment of not only motor symptoms of Parkinson’s disease (PD), but also non-motor symptoms including mood and cognition.

Why this matters

    The positive impact of physical activity on PD outcomes highlights the importance of encouraging physical activity as a therapeutic intervention at the time of PD diagnosis.
