Exercise may help prevent falls in people with Parkinson's


#1
New research, published in the Journal of Neurology, Neurosurgery and Psychiatry, could lead to new exercise-based treatments to reduce risk of falling for people with Parkinson's.

These important new findings have shown that exercise helps people with Parkinson's improve their balance, be more active and have potential to prevent falls - something that no current treatments can effectively tackle.

Hi there,
yes I also suffer from occasional falls, although fortunately so far without hurting myself. I have a Wii, but have not used it for months. My question is should I start using it without expert supervision?
Regards,

The application of intelligence and common sense can make the patient the best expert. At least when it comes to using the Wii!
