@knightkris So glad to be of help. Yes there is physical therapy for PD and it is great. It teaches you how to walk better and have better balance. Many hospitals offer balance classes as well. You can also look for Tai-Chi classes in your community, Tai-Chi is also good for balance. If you go the the National Parkinson’s website you can probably find support groups in your area. Your neurologist’s office also might be able to refer you to a support group! We wish you well – keep in touch and let us know how you are doing. Mayo Connect is a caring community!

My husband has Parkinson's and we live in The Dalles, Oregon. We are very fortunate to have a couple whom run a twice a week exercise program here. This program has been going on for about three months. Participants are in various stages of this disease. With the exercises, everyone has made so much positive progress.
