Today we go into more detail about Freezing of Gait (FOG) in Parkinson’s. We discuss what a therapist should know about medication dosage with clients, the key components of exercises specific for FOG, why it matters if your client has typical PD or atypical PD, and more. Claire shares supplemental materials for helping you characterize FOG as well as other key tips for therapists and providers to know!

Anti-racist action: We hired a DEI coach to help us! We’ve taken the next big step and hired an expert to coach us. It will be both personal and professional training.
