Other exercise and motivational videos at the link below that are helpful to me and I hope they inspire others to stay healthy and positive with PD.

Interested in more discussions like this? Go to the Parkinson's Disease group.

My husband was really helped by Rock Steady if there’s a group near you. Great exercise and camaraderie-also good support for the caregivers!

Hello @msealy,

Welcome to Mayo Connect. I'm glad that you joined the PD discussion group. I know of others who have been helped by Rock Steady boxing. I tend to prefer Dancing for PD but we each have our own personal preferences.

How is your husband doing with his PD diagnosis? How long ago was he diagnosed?

Hello @dccjjuarez

I can see that you have taken a positive approach to PD. Thank you for sharing some of your videos. Exercise is a very important part of PD treatment. With medication, and exercise many of the disabilities of PD can be minimized.

Could you share a bit more about your history of PD?

He was diagnosed about 4 years ago, but had symptoms for awhile before that. He was diagnosed with MCI ahead of the Parkinson’s diagnosis. He did well until last summer, but lost mobility then and has not really regained it since. We moved to Florida last October and the move has been good for both of us-especially for me with the ability to get outside every day and enjoy the beautiful surroundings and the weather.
