How to keep moving with Parkinson's The Parkinson's Life Podcast

    • Health & Fitness

In this episode, we’re looking at the relationship between Parkinson’s and fitness – and how to keep your body moving with the condition.

A host of research highlights the importance of physical activity for people living with Parkinson’s. But as time goes on, the condition can create new obstacles for those looking to keep up an exercise regime. So how can people with Parkinson’s stay fit?

Our first guest is Mirjam Holzel from the Netherlands, who was diagnosed with Parkinson’s seven years ago. Since her diagnosis, Mirjam’s relationship to fitness has encompassed a hike up Mount Kilimanjaro and immobility caused by back pain – which she has worked hard to overcome.

She is joined by Mariella Graziano, an Argentinian based in Luxembourg who has been a physiotherapist for more than 30 years. Determined to improve the life quality of people with Parkinson’s, she helps her patients to find the exercise routines that work best for them.

In this episode, Mirjam and Mariella discuss the importance of fitness for people with Parkinson’s – and share tips to help those with the condition to stay motivated and empowered to exercise.

This episode was funded by Bial, whose ‘Keep it on’ website aims to inspire people with Parkinson’s to get active every day. 

Parkinson’s Life magazine is produced by Speak Media on behalf of the European Parkinson’s Disease Association, the leading voice for Parkinson’s in Europe.
