Just a short note to anyone out there who doubts the importance of regular exercise for us Parkies.
I was recently laid low with a stomach bug and did no exercise at all for 3 days - it was an effort just to get out of bed.
I had little sympathy from my wife who tells me that kids get colds,men get flu, and women get on with it.
I routinely exercise up to two hours a day using an exercise bike and the Wii Fit Plus - I`m 62 but have a Wii Fit Plus age of 23.......Okay, I cheat a little,especially with the yoga routines.
Consequently my rigidity and tremor increased greatly and it`s taken the last 3 days ( back on my exercise routine ) for my symptoms to return to normal.
So there you are, undeniable proof that regular exercise DOES have a positive impact on Parky symptoms.
