OhioHealth Delay the Disease
The #1 Exercise Program for Fighting Parkinson’s Disease
At OhioHealth, we are dedicated to helping people with Parkinson’s disease (PD) manage their symptoms and maintain a quality of life. It’s one of the many reasons we offer OhioHealth Delay the Disease™, a fitness program designed to empower people with PD to take control of the disease with daily exercise.
The empowering results of our Delay the Disease exercise program can help participants:
- Move about with ease and confidence in a crowd
- Get out of bed or rise from a chair independently
- Improve handwriting
- Dress independently
- Diminish worry that stiffness, slow steps and other symptoms are obvious
- Regain a sense of moving with normality
