Exercise videos for PD patients (and others) to do at home

Jillian, an intern with our rehab team, has been making videos for our patients to use during this time when going to rehab in person is not happening. Please watch them in the embedded playlist below. Right now, two are available but more are coming!

As is the case with other at-home exercise, please be safe. Many things can be alternately done in a chair.

Exercise is not without its risks and this or any other exercise program many result in injury. As with any exercise program, if at any point during your workout you begin to feel faint, dizzy or have physical discomfort, you should stop immediately and consult a medical professional.
