Why is Exercise Important?

Living with Parkinson’s Disease (PD) can be difficult due to movement, stiffness, and slowness. You can feel discouraged when your movement is slow with perhaps a freezing gait. It is very frustrating. We can help you add regular exercise to your life routine to increase your mobility and improve the quality of your life.

Signs & Symptoms

Parkinson’s disease is a long-term degenerative disorder of the central nervous system that mainly affects the motor system.

What Are the Early Symptoms of PD?

You may note tremors in hands, arms, legs, jaw, or head. At times, you might face muscle stiffness
where the muscle remains contracted for an extended period of time, slowness of movements, impaired balance and coordination, sometimes leading to falls. It is important to get in touch with someone as soon as you note any of these symptoms. Your physician should schedule or refer you to a neurologist for testing.

Counselling the Future
of Parkinson's Disease

Parkinson Movement | “Be an inspiration for other people with Parkinson’s such that they might say, because of you, I did not give up.” Frank C. Church.”

Physical Therapy is the Key.

Most everyone knows that exercise is beneficial to people with Parkinson’s disease. But physical

therapy, in particular, is key. Why? You can remain independent by gaining mobility, strength, and

balance with the help of a professional. In the brain, connections are formed and reorganized.

Neuroplasticity is the process by which the brain changes. Exercise may improve neuroplasticity, according to some research. It is possible to improve your ability to pay attention, think, and remember

through exercise. In addition, physical activities may benefit areas of the brain associated with learning.

This effect is more obvious in the early disease phases.

Parkinson Movement | PD’s

Parkinson’s disease (PD) does not have a standard treatment. Symptoms and treatments for

Parkinson’s vary from person to person. There are several treatments available, including medication

and surgery. Lifestyle changes, such as getting more rest and exercising, are other options.

There are many medications available at Parkinson’s Movement to treat Parkinson symptoms, but none have been shown to reverse the disease’s effects. For people with PD, it is common to take a variety of medications at various times during the day to manage symptoms. The ability to keep track of medications  can be a challenge, but keeping a schedule will allow you to get the most benefit from your

medications and prevent unpleasant “off” periods due to missed doses.

Physical Therapy is the Key.

Parkinson Movement offers a movement disorder trainer who works with people who have Parkinson’s, joint replacements or joint issues. We provide online training through zoom. You can avail the class anytime, any day once the zoom session has ended.

Parkinson's Description

Maureen McCord is a certified AFAA personal trainer. She possesses more than 20 years’ of

experience. She is also certified with AEA in water aerobics/ therapy and Tivity Health SilverSneakers.

She uses Denise Medved’s program, Ageless Grace, a brain-body exercise, and received certification in

G.E.M. (Get Excited &and Move!) to assist people in gaining more mobility with daily life functions. Her passion and experience in Movement Disorders (certified through MDT Education Solutions) qualifies her to work with people who have Parkinson’s, brain injuries, or strokes.

Maureen McCord and Parkinson Movement:

The desires for Maureen are to encourage and help people improve their mobility, but are unsure how to safely do so. Allowing them to achieve their own personal potential in movement, Maureen supports and coaches those in her care to move as functionally as possible. This is done through the Parkinson

Movement website. She offers individualized training specifically tailored to your needs and limitations. This is accomplished online via zoom.  Once your program is created with Maureen, you will have access to the recording where you can practice and repeat it daily for 30 days.  You can avail the program anytime during those 30 days, making it convenient to access the recording during your “on” times so that you may maintain your independence.  Once those 30 days are up, the option to continue with a newly designed program is offered.  This is so you can vary the structure of the motions and strength in order to continue moving to the best of your ability.

About This Product:

Did you ever imagine you'd hear the words you have Parkinson’s?

How did that happen? How can that be true? There's no rhyme or reason why and to date, there is no cure. Genetics might play a role but it's not a major indicator. What are you going to do now? Having to take medication for control of your body was not in the cards for you. Maybe you're stunned, surprised, angry, or even secretly suspected it might happen. I don't know, but what I do know is your doctor, along with support groups, nutrition and therapy, could help you stay ahead of the game. What steps are you going to take to manage the progression of Parkinson's?

Testimonial
Maureen has been my mom's personal trainer for several years now. We first met Maureen at the Dunwoody Baptist Gym and were very happy with the progress my mom made while working with her. Once COVID hit, we realized we were not comfortable taking my mom to the gym, so we asked Maureen if she would be willing to come to our home. That was in early 2020, and we have never been happier that we made that decision. My mom just turned 90 and is still able to move around without a walker, take walks, get herself in and out of her tub every night, and dress. Maureen's workouts are a perfect combination of strength training, balance, and memory. We absolutely credit Maureen with helping ensure that my mom stays physically and mentally strong and is very likely a key reason why she is still healthy and happy at 90!” Testimonial

Maureen McCord was magnificent in working with my husband who had Parkinson’s Disease. She taught him life-saving skills such as how to get himself up from a fall and increased his muscle strength and exercised his mental skills. She adapted her instruction to deal with his individual needs and developed a great rapport. I highly recommend Maureen McCord who will make a positive impact with anyone who is fortunate enough to work with her. Testimonial

I have been a client of Maureen for 10 years. She is very knowledgeable about body mechanics and how to incorporate ways to motivate her clients into her sessions. Through her sessions, I have improved my strength, my mobility and my balance. I went from a person who did not exercise at all to one who looks forward to her sessions. She can adapt exercises to your goals, your ability and age. I highly recommend her if you are looking for a person who can motivate and assist you to reach your exercise goals.. Testimonial
