Julie Jones, MCSP, MSc, PgCert TLT, BSc (Hons), SFHEA, Robert Gordon University, Aberdeen, UK, provides an overview to challenges in prescribing exercise to patients with Parkinson’s disease. Non-motor symptoms such as fatigue as well as apathy and a lack of motivation may impede patients from exercising. Access to neurologists and physiotherapists may additionally be an issue and even with access, short-term follow-ups may reduce the efficacy of exercise. This interview took place at the 2022 International Congress of Parkinson’s Disease and Movement Disorders in Madrid, Spain.
