Ongoing research supports the use of exercise as a tool to manage Parkinson’s disease, where the form of exercise can target a specific symptom in patients. Personalized regiments that can enhance strength, balance and cognitive abilities are additionally suggested, where the frequency and intensity can be tailored. Overall, five sessions a week totaling 150 minutes is currently recommended for patients.
