    You indicated that foot Dystonia was often experienced with the PRKN & PINK1 mutation. Any form of targeted Mitochondrial treatment, or involvement in medical trials obviously requires knowing if you have the PRKN or PINK1 mutation. With a family history of Parkinsons through three successive generations all diagnosed at 61 (me, Father and his Mother), and foot dystonia exactly as per the patients in your video would you recommend genetic testing for myself and/or children? I’ve been considering it for a while as I understand it is quite expensive, but the recent emegence of dystonia is swaying me towards having it done..

The tracker is designed to help you track the amount of time you spend in scheduled exercise each day. Scheduled exercise is activity you have prioritised in your day for health and to help slow your Parkinson’s down. This might include PD Warrior exercise, fast walking, golfing, going to the gym etc. It does not include incidental activity such as housework & gardening (although we hope this increases too). The aim of the tracker is to help you build an exercise habit and to keep you accountable, so try and enter something each day.
At the end of the 10 Week Challenge you can download and review your overall performance.
