Parkinsons Back Pain

I have had back pain ever since I realized something was not right with me: 6-9 months before I was "officially" diagnosed with PD. Exercise, such as BIG Therapy, Yoga, and swimming, has helped. Walking has not helped, it actually heightens the pain (at least for me). I have not discovered any meds, including over the counter meds, that can help. Besides asking the doc, I would seek assistance from a PT.
For whatever its worth…

Hi, @lsdempsey – thanks for sharing what exercises have helped with the back pain and which have not.

I'd like to tag @sainath @leftylucy @mshoggie @susan62 @justiniano @namaste88, who also may be interested in this topic on Parkinson's and back pain,

Will you share more about the BIG therapy and what it entails, @lsdempsey?
